Article 1. This body shall be known as the North Carolina West Chowan 
Baptist Association. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

Art. 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches con- 
nected with this body, and all ordained ministers who are members or pas- 
tors of said churches, together with the officers of this Association, and 
chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of one hundred members 
and under shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each additional one 
hundred members, an additional messenger; Provided, that no church shall 
have more than four messengers. 

OBJECTS. 

Art. 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend* measures for in- 
creasing the harmony, the intelligence and the spiritual power of the church- 
es, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources and their 
gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom in the earth. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES. 

Art. 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sover- 
eignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legisla- 
tive council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches and recom- 
mend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but can not bind them in 
any way. Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of 
the body, it may justly claim for itself, for its objects and for its recommen- 
dation the very highest consideration and regard. 

Art. 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any church that be- 
comes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice, or that fails to repre- 
sent itself, either by messenger or letter, more than two successive ses- 
sions, without sufficient reasons, or that treats with contempt its objects 
and requirements, or upon application of a church for dismission. 

RIGHTS' OF CHURCHES. 

Art. 6. Each individual church shall hold and exercise all the functions 
of an independent church of Jesus Christ. As constituent members of this 
Association, the churches shall have right to advise, when desired*, in case 
of difficulty, and suggest plans of usefulness to be adopted. It shall be the 
undisputed privilege of any church to withdraw it's membership from this 
Association whenever it shall so elect. 

DUTIES OF CHURCHES. 

Art. 7. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as messengers, as 
far as practicable, their most capable members, to require their attendance, 
and to send by them a contribution to the Association fund to pay for print- 
ing the minutes and other necessary expenses 

Art. 8. It shall be the duty of each church to send an annual letter to the 
Association, giving: (1) locality; (2) names of its pastor and clerk and their 
respective postoffices; (3) the Sabbaths of regular service; (4) the church 
statistics, including the number baptized, received by letter, restored, dis-

business after the enrollment of messengers. As soon as the new officers 
shall have taken their seats, the body shall be declared organized and pre- 
pared for business. 

, Art. 10. In order to conserve time and not interefere with the main work 
of the body, this Association will not consider any routine or miscellaneous 
business except at the close of the discussion of each general topic. 

DUTIES OF OFFICERS. 

Art. 11. It shall be the duty of the Moderator to open the meetings punct- 
ually at time appointed; to enforce the rules; to preserve ord'er, and to exer. 
cise all the prerogatives of a presiding officer, according to the principles 
of parliamentary usage. 

Art. 12. It shall be the duty of the Vice-Moderator to discharge the du- 
ties of the Moderator in his absence. 

Art. 13. It shall be the d'uty of the Clerk to keep a faithful record of the 
proceedings of the body, and superintend the printing and distribution of 
same, and to keep on file the printed Minutes and other important docu- 
ments belonging to the body. He may appoint an assistant when necessary. 
The Clerk shall receive for his services, fifty dollars out of the minute fund. 

Art, 14. It shall be the duty of the Treasurer to receive and disburse the 
money contributed to the Minute fund, as directed 1 by the body, and make 
an annual report of the same. 

Art 15. It shall be the duty of the Historian, who shall be elected at each 
annual meeting of the body, to prepare for publication in the Minutes an

make report to the next Association. 

Art. 16. On the first day of the session there shall be appointed a com- 
mittee of finance, committee on time, place, and preacher and a committee of 
one from each county to nominate representatives of Boards and to nomi-

WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION.

AFTERNOON SESSION. 

Devotional exercises conducted by G. D, Leggett, who read ten 
verses of the third chapter of first John. 

Dr. Chas. E. Maddry and Chas. Anderson were recognized and 
welcomed. 

Report on Missions was read by R. R. Lanier as follows : 

REPORT ON MISSIONS'. 

In The Acts of the Apostles, chapter one an<? verse eight, we have the com- 
plete Mission program — "And ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusa- 
lem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the 
earth." Briefly stated then, our program is: "Go — Teach — and Baptize" — all 
the world. Beginning at Jerusalem, local church, then Judea, State; Sa- 
maria, Home, and uttermost part, Foreign Missions." 

I. STATE MISSIONS' 

No department of our work has produced greater results than State Mis- 
sions. The comprehensive view of our needs, the definite concrete action, 
the conservation of results and the bringing to bear the strength of the de- 
nomination upon the weak places, and the upbuilding of the work of the 
Master will ever keep S'tate Missions close to the heart of our people; more 
than half of the Churches in the State have been organized by missionaries of 
the state board, and these churches are giving a large part of the amount 
contributed to carry on the work of the Lord. 

We are spending for State Missions this year $126,000. One hundred and 
eighty missionary pastors in fifty-three Associations are receiving aid. These 
pastors are serving three hundred churches. We have, associated with our 
beloved and efficient Secretary Dr. Chas. E. Maddrey, three enlistment men . 
three evangelists; three Stud'ent Workers; four in the Sunday School depart- 
ment; three in W. M. U. department; three in B. Y P. U. work; Associai 
Secretary Hamby, and Stewardship Secretary Gilmore. 

At the last session of the Baptist State Cinvention in Gastonia, we took 
as our objective for this year, $2,000,000. Will we, as Baptists of North Caro- 
lina fail to reach our aim, or can we afford to fail God in an hour like this? 
In the words of the faithful let us say: "We are able, let us go up and possess 
it." If our Baptist people were only as liberal as the ancient Jew and would 
give one-tenth of their income, that would put in the Lord's treasury this 
year $15,000,000. Let us say, "By the grace of God we will reach our ob- 
jective." 

II. HOME MISSIONS. 

A study of the Board's annual reports for these five years of the 75-Million 
Campaign reveals a record of great achievements. Notwithstanding the em. 
barrassment of a heavy debt that has rested on the Board' for four years 
past, God has bestowed unwonted favor upon the labors of the Missionaries 
and Evangelists of the Board. Meetings of great power have been held in 
various fields and thousands have been brought to Christ Fields notably 
hard, are coming to self-support and in turn are having a part in our denomi- 
national work. Enlargement is called for from every direction. The calls 
are many and heart-searching from weak churches needing help and destitute 
fields needing missionaries in the country, our growing towns and cities. 

The Home Mission Board, notwithstanding its burdensome debt and re- 



10 



FORTY-SECOND ANNUAL. SESSION. 



trenchment in its forces, presents a wonderful outlook for the future. The 
South constitutes the nursery, the training ground, the source of supplies, 
indeed for our conquest in all lands. If we fail here we fail everywhere! 
If we succeed here we succeed everywhere! May God' 1 help our people in this 
great day of opportunity with high resolve to meet these issues worthily and 
hasten the coming of His Kingdom throughout the earth. 

If we raise the full 75 Million dollars and Home Missions receives its due 
proportion we can pay off all the Board's debt and be ready for an aggressive 
work for the future. 

III. FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

Our Foreign Mission work now encircles the earth. The story of the work 
of the past year is one of lights and shadows. 

I. SOME SHADOWS. 

1 Our Foreign Mission Board has been burdened all through the year with 
a heavy indebtedness. At the end of the Convention year, April 30, the debt 
amounted to $711,611.95. This has cast a shadow over the work of the year. 

2. In an effort to economize the Board has cut off all appropriations for 
new equipment on all fields, thus leaving many missionaries without homes, 
many churches without places of worship, many physicians without hospital 
facilities, and many schools without buildings. 

3. At a meeting of the Board it was decided that not a single new mission- 
ary could be sent out during the year upon which we are entering. This 
means that many stations are left without reinforcement, and that no new 
stations can be opened. 

II. SOME LIGHTS'. 

1. Through the generosity of individuals and churches money has been pro- 
vided, over and above campaign pledges, to equip and send out 54 new mis- 
sionaries. This .brings the total of new missionaries sent out since the cam- 
paign started up to 216, or nearly twice as many as we had when the cam- 
paign started 

2. A revival spirit has broken out in nearly all of our mission fields. The 
people are more ready to respond to the gospel appeal than ever before. Men 
and women are turning away from the false religions which have held them 
so long, and are reaching out after God. During the past year 12,856 converts 
have been baptized, making a total of 47,190 since the campaign started. 

3. Growth in all departments of the work During the year 204 new church- 
es have been organized, 121 new outstations have been opened, and 64 new 
Sunday Schools have been begun. God' has blessed the work of our board in 
a remarkable way. Surely we will prove ourselves unworthy of his goodness 
unless we gird ourselves with the spirit of sacrifice and service and make it 
possible for the work of advance all along the line. 

We commend to our Churches "Home and Foreign Fields." 

IV. WOMEN'S" WORK. 

Organized missionary work among the women of the Southern Baptist 
Convention began in 1888, with the organization of the Woman's Missionary 
Union, auxiliary to the Southern Baptist Convention But even prior to that 
time the Baptist women of North Carolina were doing cooperative work 
through their central committee, and were reporting to the Baptist State 
Convention. Thirty-three years ago they had their first annual meeting and 
entered on a definite program of work. Their purpose has been to stimulate 
missionary interest among the Baptist women., girls and children, and to col-

lect fundk for missionary purposes. How well they have succeeded is shown 
by their last annual report. 

There are now 2,278 Societies in our churches, and last year these socie- 
ties contributed $325,392.12, to the objects of the Convention. Perhaps the 
most far-reaching work of the societies is not revealed in financial statistics, 
but rather in the missionary spirit which they have kindled and fostered. 

In our Association there are 144 Societies. Last year these Societies con- 
tributed $16,155.72 to our Convention objects. 

Realizing the importance of their efforts, we most heartily commend the Wo., 
man's Work to all our Churches. Respectfully, 

R. R. LANIER 

Pending motion to adopt the report, Dr. Chas. E. Maddry, our 
State Mission Secretary, addressed the Association. J. L. Powers 
spoken on Foreign Missions and Mrs. E. A. Huggins read a paper 
prepared on Woman's Work which is as follows : 

MISSION REPORT OP WOMAN'S WORK. 

Missions is the keynote of all our work, regardless of the line of work 
undertaken by the churches. The whole effort is to win souls into His king- 
dom. The West Chowan Woman's Missionary Union during the past year, 
its 30th anniversary, used every known method to break the ground in order 
that the mission seed might have proper soil in which to germinate, develop 
and' bring forth we pray, some thirty, some sixty and some a hundred fold. 

Mission Study has steadily advanced. Again West Chowan leads the State 
in Mission Study Classes. The entire organization is aroused to the impor- 
tance of the study of missions. One County Union has a circulating Mission 
Study Library. 

Personal service work is being more stressed as a great part in preparing 
the soil for soul harvesting. Many Young Peoples' organizations have been 
organized and are doing standard work along with the old ones. Special sea- 
sons of prayer were observed in most churches. 

The Associational W M. U. supports a Missionary in China and eight Bible 
women. Through the County Unions it gives three scholarships to the Louis- 
ville Training School. 

The churches that have led in giving and 1 reached the $75,000,000 campaign 
pledges nearest are the churches with the most W. M. IT members who have 
learned to give systematically. The greatest per cent of tithers in the church- 
es are W. M. U. members. The offering, the past year have exceeded all prev- 
ious years, the grand total being $17,667.35. Many phases of work have moved 
onward, yet our aim is not attained. Leaders for Young People's work being 
the cry near and far As Jesus entered into active service during His thir- 
tieth year, may we launch out into greater soil preparation for soul winning. 

In North Carolina during the past four years the Baptists at the last Con- 
vention reported given $4,086,395.93 and the women gave nearly one-third of 
it. For four years the W. M. U. of North Carolina have averaged $300,000 
a year and stand's fourth in the list of Southern States in $75,000,000 Cam- 
paign The apportionment^has already been reached. 

The women of the S'tate and Southland are doing a mighty work through 
their respective organizations. Besides giving great sums of money through 
the churches, they are independently giving to both Home and Foreign Fields. 

With a growing conviction as to the magnitude and meaning of the mission 
task; cheered by the victories already won: we turn our faces toward the 
future with prayerful hearts for greater conquest in His name. 

Respectfullv submitted, 

MRS. E. A. HUGGINS. 

Report adopted.

WEDNESDAY MORNING SESSION. 

At 10 A. M. devotional service was conducted by L. E. Dailey. 
After prayer by E. N. Gardner, Association was called to order and 
M. A. Huggins, our new Educational Secretary for the State, was

Pastor 0. C. Smith was present and read the report on Education : 

REPORT ON EDUCATION. 

Education is thought of in three parts, Secular, Christian and Religious. 

S'ecular Education is the teaching and study of the arts and sciences apart 
from any organic or institutional connection with religion. 

Christian Education is the teaching and study of the arts and sciences with 
the Bible and religious subjects included in the curricula — in Institutions 
under direct denominational ownership and control, or under private owner- 
ship whose purpose is avowedly Christian. 

Religious Education is the scientific study and teaching of religious truth 
with a view to Evangelism, development of Christian Character, and training 
for Christian service. 

This report has to do with Christian and Religious Education. We take, 
first, Religious Education 

SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

Our Sunday Schools constitute at once the pride and biggest problem of 
the West Chowan Association. Our pride, in the number of Standard Sun- 
day Schools, seven, thus leading all the Associations in the State. The fol-

lowing are the West Chowan Standard Schools: Jackson, River Side, Meher- 
rin, Windsor, Capehart's, Winton and Murfreesboro. 

Our problem 1 consists in enrollment and? in training. In these two features 
we are very much behind' the State average. As to enrollment the State aver- 
age as compared with Church Membership is eighty-one per cent, while the 
average of our Association is only 62 1-2 per cent. The Gaston Association 
leads the State in comparative enrollment, their proportion being 130 per cent. 

In training we have made splendid progress, but with only Seven Standard 
Schools out of a total of fifty-eight we have far to go in this line. 

In view of the tremendous problem that our comparative small Sunday 
School enrollment and comparative meager amount of training thrust upon 
us, perhaps it is time that this Association seriously consider the employ- 
ment of a full time worker for our Sunday School and B. Y. P. U. forces 
This report commends this to the serious consideration of the Association. 

Two helpful features of our general Sunday School work are the Associa- 
tional Sunday School Convention and the Associational organized Class Con- 
vention. These conventions met with Capehart's Church this past year, 
were well attended', fine interest was manifested and good progress shown. 

BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLE'S' UNION. 

This feature of Religious Education has made magnificent progress in our 
bounds, and the Associational Convention is one of the livest general organi- 
zations that we have. We have 52 Unions with 1355 members, 14 of our 
Unions being Standard. Three State banners were awarded Unions in this 
Association at the State B. Y. P. U. Convention in Wilmington the past June 
The Senior Banner going to Ashley's Grove, the Intermediate to Meherrin, 
and the Junior to Murfreesboro. 

These achievements should inspire other Unions to more intense work. 

CORRELATION OP EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES. 

With the multiplication of Educational organizations in our churches, so 
many appealing to the same people, and the work to some extent over-lapping, 
this report suggests that thoughtful consideration on the part of our churches 
be given to the correlation of education activities in the local churches. 

DAILY VACATION BIBLE SCHOOLS. 

This name sets forth the character of one of the most helpful agencies for 
religious instruction of our youth known. It is a school, meeting daily, 
five days a week, for a period of about six weeks d'uring public school vacalion 
for instruction in the Bible and allied subjects. This report commends this 
to the careful thought of our pastors and leaders. 

CHOWAN ASSEMBLY. 

The first session of the Chowan Assembly was held at Chowan College July 
15th to 24th last, and proved a surprising and gratifying success The second 
session is assured for us by our State Board of Missions, and it should be 
largely patronized by our people. The Assembly offers us the opportunity for 
instruction, inspiration, fellowship and recreation at very small cost. We are 
grateful to the State Board for this generous gesture of theirs. 

We come now to the head 1 of Christian Education considering first, 

MINISTERIAL EDUCATION. 

This is rather a combination of Christian Education and Religious Educa- 
tion, including in the latter, theological education. Denominationally Bap-

fists train their ministers in our High Schools, Colleges and Seminaries. 
North Carolina's Ministerial students are in school as follows: 

Eigthy-one in Wake Forest College, 147 in our high schools and Junior 
Colleges, — 46 in the Louisville Seminary, — seven in the Fort Worth Semi- 
nary, and eight in the New Orleans Bible Institute. Our young women ar; 
training for full time christian work — 17 in the Training School at Louis 
ville — Ave in Fort Worth, — one in the Bible Institute. These figures of 
course are those of last year, those of the present school year being un- 
available. 

SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES. 

In North Carolina the Baptist State Convention fosters three colleges, five 
high schools and one junior college. The Home Mission Board has in North 
Carolina seven Mountain High Schools and one Junior College. 

Wake Forest will ever be supreme among North Carolina Baptists as our 
college for boys. It is gratifying to rote its large enrollment, and we all 
rejoice in its increase, in endowment, which amounts to $2,102,733 56. 

Meredith College will ever stand as Queen among our schools for women, 
and West Chowan unhesitatingly joins with the rest of the North Carolina 
Baotist hosts in admiration of her pristine beauty, her high attainments, 
and her magnificent position among the colleges of our Southland'. Our 
hearts go out to the New Meredith, with her new modern buildings on the 
magnificent new site, and with her radiant future. There are still unsold 
$300,000 of the $750,000 bond issue. We commend the purchase of these to 
our people as a good investment and we hope that others of the West Chowan 
Will purchase them, thus helping Meredith to the achieving of her immediate 
objective. 

CHOWAN COLLEGE. 

While we gladly recognize the Queenship of Meredith, still we are glad 
to claim Chowan's rank with her as a Charming Young Princess looking for- 
ward with the new hope and great enthusiasm to a larger career of useful 
service to the Chowan section and the denomination as a whole. Under the 
wise leadership of the gifted and scholarly President, Dr. C. P. Weaver, the 
College is on a firmer foundation than at any time in her long and glorious 
career. We congratulate President Weaver on the splendid faculty th°t he 
has assembled, ranking in scholarship and ability, second to that of no institu- 
tion in North Carolina. 

Our hearts were made to rejoice a few weeks ago when it was announced 
that the Baptist State Board of Education had graded Chowan College as 
standard, and now it remains only for the North Carolina Board of Education 
to give Chowan this same grade, when it shall rank with the highest colleges 
in our State. The Library several months ago attained its standard', and re- 
cently the Alumnae Association decided to raise $15,000 as a Library endow- 
ment, and half of this amount has already been subscribed. The Science 
Department has also attained standard, has been newly equipped, and is doing 
fine work. The endowment is now $25,000 and the Trustees are now launch- 
ing a campaign to raise this to at least $250,000 at once. The Association is 
urged to co-operate with the trustees in achieving this goal. 

During the past year the Dormitory capacity was increased by the addition 
of eight rooms to the new building. The enrollment is now 118, all of whom 
are college students, the entire preparatory department having been abolished. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION IN GENERAL. 

Our desire to see our education under denominational control even more 
Specifically, and more unquestionably, Christian. We want to know beyond

a peradventure, save as there may be an occasional individual lapse of faith, 
that the faith of our college students will be deepened, rather than weakened, 
by a four-year's college course. 

We want the faith of our instructors sc unquestionably sound, and known 
to be sound, their teaching so Christian, with Christ as the great unifying 
factor of all phases of truth; and their lives so spiritual and so devotional, 
that our boys and girls will return home to be great bulwarks of faith ,n 
their home churches. 

Christianity unhesitatingly demand's that scholarship in Christian col- 
leges shall be thoroughly permeated with the religion of Jesus Christ, and 
that in all of its research and findings it shall see God, and Christ, and the 
Holy Spirit. We want our youth taught the sciences, and we also want their 
teachers to show them God's place in His universe. 

We say, "Teach our youth that if Sidney Lanier could get the lesson out 
of the marsh hen building her nest on the watery sod, that he should heartily 
lay him ahold of the greatness of God, then how much more should the larger 
knowledge of the now known universe be the means of the student building 
his nest in that same greatness of God, the comparative immensity of which 
was not known to Sidney Lanier. Teach all you know and all you can about 
life, but teach that back of all known life is THAT LIFE, which is the great 
source of all life; that Life, which can never perhaps be known biologically, 
is revealed in the Scriptures as in all, above all, and through all " 

Christian Education, being in name Christian, presupposes Christian in- 
structors; men and women who believe and assert that the Bible is the Word 
of God, and who hold it as supreme over all books, whose personal lives 
square with its teachings; who are vitally interested in the personal salva- 
tion of their students; and who regard Christ as THE TRUTH, and hence 
the unifier of all truth. 

Christian EdVication, having for its purpose, in large measure, the teaching 
of the arts and sciences, demands full and accurate scholarship on the part 
of those who comprise the faculties of our institutions of learning, and noth- 
ing short of the highest scholarship will meet the ideals of a Christianity 
whose greatest aim is to sho^ T forth the glories of Him in whom are hid all 
the treasures of wisdom and Knowledge. Respectfullv submitted,

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE. 

Service to our needy fellowmen is the practical expression of Christianity. 
In the matter of Christian social service, Jesus set the pace; the apostolic 
church carried the work forward, and we as a Christian body must follow 
in their train. The cry of suffering and need is heard from many quarters. 
Baptists are answering the cry only in a limited way. Their work in the field 
of social service is being conducted through three channels — the Orphanage, 
Hospitals and the Relief and Annuity Board. 

The first item is our Orphanage. For nearly forty years our denomination 
has been giving a home to homeless and needy children. In the hearts of 
cur people the Orphanage has always had a warm place The Orphanage is 
the pride of North Carolina Baptists, and they have given liberally to its 



16 



FORTY-S'ECOND ANNUAL SESSION. 



support, Every need of the child has been taken into consideration and pro- 
vision has been made for him to be well cared for and well trained?. The 
boy or girl trained at the Orphanage goes out to be a blessing to the world 
as a result of training received. 

The Orphanage \s operated in two divisions. The main division is located 
at Thomasville, and a smaller division known as the Kennedy Home is locat- 
ed in Lenoir County six miles from Kinston. Both divisions of the institu- 
tion are under the same administration. 

The Orphanage now cares for 550 children — at Thomasville 460; at the 
Kennedy Home 90. Up to the present 2236 have been helped through the 
the Orphanage. There are 78 officers and employees on the pay roll. The 
cost to maintain each child is £289.44 per year or $24.12 pe v month. The 
daily cost for the support of 550 children is $442.20. In addition to the work 
at the Orphanage the Mother's Aid Fund has been established whereby aid is 
given that the children may be kept with the mother in the home. In any 
case where money from the fund is sought, the local church appoints a com- 
mittee to look after the matter; to receive the monthly check from the Or- 
phanage treasurer; to see that the money is well spent; and to report monthly 
to the Church and Orphanage. The committee also aids in providing other 
ways of support for the mother and children. The local church in this way 
becomes the ally of the Orphanage in its work. Last year there were 68 
mothers and 297 children who received aid in this way. The work in this 
department is very promising. 

The Orphanage, in spite of its advancement, has many needs. Only half 
of the cottages have been put on the unit plan. The conversion of the rest 
of the homes should begin at once. The campus deserves more attention: 
a better sod is needed over the entire ground's, and the walks are far from 
satisfactory. In addition to those pressing needs is the fact that many chil- 
dren are being turned away from year to year because of the lack of ade- 
quate room Let us consider their needs and make our contributions large. 

Inasmuch as the Orphanage has withdrawn itself from the general program 
outlined by the state and will raise its funds independent of other agencies, 
your committee would recommend': 

1. That all of our churches set apart one S'unday in each month in Sunday 
School and make an offering to the Orphanage, and remember the Orphanage 
at Thanksgiving with an offering of one day's labor. 

2. That we pray for those who have this great work in their hands to the 
end that God shall call from our Orphanage many useful men and women. 

HOSPITALS. 

Since the Convention in Washington four years ago more than 100 Protes- 
tant hospitals hove been established and of the total number of beds Southern 
Baptists have one-fourth. Thousands of sick would* not be ministered to 
were it not for the work being done by these institutions. 

Southern Baptists have 24 hospitals in 14 States having a capacity of 2756 
beds that served 44,849 patients last year. The property of these is worth 
over eight millions of dollars. 

Our hospital at Winston-Salem begins its second year under favorable 
conditions. The first year exceeded all expectations in every line of work. 
1400 patients were treated, nearly 200 of them being charity patients who 
came from every part of the state. Not all who came were cured, but the 
record showed that those who c*ame were wonderfully blessed. The per- 
centage of cures, so unusual, is attributed largely to the power of prayer. 

For the last two months the earnings equalled the expenditures — a re* 
markable fact. The second year begins with the hospital full of patients. 
There are 86 bed's and the fifth floor has to be used for nurses. An increase 
of 50 per cent in number of patients is expected this year. The nurses are 
all Christians and are willing, courteous, pleasant and earnest. They are 
lovers of the cause. Service is their motto and they give to the patients

their best. The hospital has increased its field of endeavor and added to its 
efficiency until it has built up a constituency and made a reputation that 
will contribute to its growth. 

WITH THE PROGRESS' THERE COME MANY NEEDS. 

1. The Mother's Day offerings last May failed to liquidate all indebtedness 
for supplies and opening expenses. This left a debt for all charity work 
atone and compelled the hospital to borrow all funds with which to do charity 
work this year, which amounts to $750 monthly. The call comes for the 
churches to raise and send money from time to time to care for the large 
number of those who would otherwise be turned away. 

2. A nurse's home is needed. 18 beds would be available if there were a 
home for the nurses. 

3. Radium is needed. Many patients come with cancers and other diseases 
and the hospital has to call upon the city hospital radium to save our pa- 
tients. It is hoped that some one will donate this necessary commodity. 

Your Committee recommends: 

1. That we as an Association follow the plan offered? by our state conven- 
tion and designate Mothers' Day as Hospital day, — and that on this day, both 
in Sunday School and church services we shall inform the people of the 
work of the hospitals and get a worthy offering for 

MINISTERIAL RELIEF. 

The Relief and Annuity Board has had a little more than five years of 
actual functioning. In the meantime it has paid to its old and retired preach- 
ers $538,944.96. The Board paid out during the past year to its relief bene- 
ficiaries the sum of $125,449.60 which is $12,000 in excess of what we paid 
last year. 105 of these beneficiaries or more than one-tenth of all those in 
the 14 states of the Southern Baptist Convention are from North Carolina. 
They consist mainly of old' ministers and widows of old ministers; but occa- 
sionally the Board comes to the rescue of a young man who breaks down. 

The first great need of the Board is an interest bearing fund that will 
yield on the relief side of the work alone $100,000 annually, independently 
of what the Board would receive from the annual budget. A fund of this 
sort would enable the Board so greatly to increase its benefits to the retired 
preachers until it could at least approximate something in the way of ade- 
quate aid. Southern Baptists need 1 to deal most liberally with the Relief and 
Annuity Board and should see that there is a fund, bearing interst sufficient 
to care for the aged Soldiers of the Cross. 

Let us not forget our Christmas gift to the old preachers. Let us adopt 
the new slogan: A pension for every Baptist minister and from every Baptist 
church a full share of the cost.

THE HISTORIAN'S REPORT- 

Your historian, John P. Cale, early in the year moved from 1 our Association 
to Eastern Shore of Virginia and by request of the executive committee the 
Clerk has picked up the following fragments of history. 

Real effective work has been done in B. Y. P. U. circles. As showing part 
of results four of the State B. Y. P. U. banners came to this Association: 
Senior banner won by Ashley's Grove; Intermediate, went to Meherrin. the 
Junior to Murfreesboro and Associational banner to West Chowan. For the 
new Summer Assembly at Chowan College, the advances made at Chowan Col- 
lege and new interest in Sunday School work see report on Education. We 
call attention to report on Digest published on another page for other ad- 
vances 

THE BUILDING SPIRIT 

grows apace. Severn has built a new house of worship costing $20,000, ad- 
mirably equipped for Sunday School work. 

Christian Harbor has remodeled her house of worship and added eight Sun- 
day School rooms at a cost of $2500.00. 

Harrellsville has enlarged and improved the quarters for Junior and Inter- 
mediate departments of Sunday School and painted the church house. Har- 
rellsville and Christian Harbor churches have erected an up-to-date home for 
the pastor, having eight rooms and costing $4,800.00. 

Powellsville has built a pastor's home costing $3,500.00 and located pastor 
Dailey and family there. 

Aulander has built an excellent brick home for the pastor. 

Seaboard has erected an elegant pastor's home, built of tapestry brick, 
having nine rooms, steam heat, lights and water and costing $15,000.00. 

Winton church has added four Sunday school rooms at a cost of $1,000.00. 
This gives eight rooms besides auditorium, furnishing ample room for the 
Sunday School which is now standardized. They also bought a piano. 

Robert's Chapel has purchased a lot contemplating building a house of wor- 
ship. 

Pleasant Grove has added two Sunday School rooms. 

PASTORAL CHANGES. 

Our Association lost an active pastor in John P. Cale who went to eastern 
shore of Virginia. We lost another enthusiastic pastor in J. H. Barnes who 
left to pursue his studies further. We felt keenly our loss in the death of 
S. F. Bristow, noticed more fully in this report. L. E. Dailey gave up Mars 
Hill and located at Powellsville. T. E, Walters resigned Colerain and lo- 
cated at Harrellsville. J. W. Downey has resigned his work in our Associa- 
tion. E. N. Gard'ner has resigned to leave at the end of the year for the 
Orphanage church at Thomasville. E. J. Isenhower has resigned at Ahoskie, 
effective January 1st. J. Fred Stimson gives up Union for full time at Au.

DEATHS 

in our Association. The following have been called to the writer's attention: 
Elder S. F. Bristow died at his home in Colerain, July 4th, aged 72. He had 
been active in the ministry for over 40 years. He was a true Christian gen- 
tleman, a man of fine fellowship and deeply consecrated in the work of the 
ministry. He spent a greater part of his life in this Association, been pas-

CASHIE BAPTIST CHURCH. 

C^ship Ba.Dt.ist Church was organized at Windsor, North Carolina, in 1770, 
by Jeremiah Dargan and his wife Anne Moore. "Elder Jeremiah Dargan was 
converted and baptized in South Carolina, but divine Providence so ordered 
that he should move in, and become a resident of Bertie County, North Caro- 
lina. The manner and means by which it was effected through the divine 
agency of Him, who worketh all things according to the counsel of His own 
will, was Sister Dargan, whose name before marrieo' was Anne Moore, who 
resided at Cashie, in Bertie County, got converted, and believed that immer- 
sion was the scriptural mode of baptism, and as there was no administrator 
near to administer it unto her, she traveled out into the State of South Caro- 
lina, under a sense of duty and a desire to comply with it. Here she met 
with Elder Dargan, whom she soon after married, and he moved with her 
into Bertie County." 

"Before a meeting house was built,he usually preached' at i Mr. S'owell's, 
and at other private houses in the settlement, and was greatly persecuted 
by a few, who used all their influence to prevent him from preaching, particu-

larly Captain John Campbell. But vain were his attempts, for the Baptists 
now, were in a measure like the Israelites in Egypt, the more they afflicted 
them the more they multiplied." 

The Church when organized was named "Cashie" taken from the name of 
Cashie River not far away, where the baptismal services were conducted. In 
a few years Jeremiah Dargan purchased half an acre of land nearly a mile 
and a half east of Windsor, now known as Sandy Point, on which he erected 
a commodious house of worship, about forty-two feet square. This Church 
was first gathered and' constituted on the Separate Order, but came into fel- 
lowship of the Regular Baptist Church after the revolution took place at the 
Palls of Tar River. 

Elder Dargan continued pastor of the church until his death on December 
25th, 1786. "He was a remarkable pious Christian, and a very zealous min- 
ister of the gospel." After his death the church was without a regular pas- 
tor until July 6th, 1794, when Brother Aaron Spivey was ordained to the min- 
istry and was duly "on that day owned as our pastor." During the period 
between the death of Elder Dargan and the ordination of Elder S'pivey, Mar- 
tin Ross, James Ross, Lemuel Burkitt and other visiting ministers preacheo? at 
this church and ministered unto the congregation. The names of those who 
officiated at the first location of the church are those of the great pioneer 
Baptist preachers of this north-eastern section of our State. The minutes 
of the conferences since April 2, 1791, have been diligently preserved. The 
strong and influential men of Bertie county were members of Cashie, and its 
roll of members contain every type of citizen and citizens of every business 
calling. Both master and slave here worshipped their God together. 

For convenience the Church was moved to its present location in Windsor 
in 1853, though services were occasionally had out at Sandy Point, in the old 
meeting house for several years, in deference to the sentiments of the older 
members of the church. The house of worship in Windsor was not fully com- 
pleted until 1854. The building then erected served the congregation until 
1910, when it was removed and the present brick building was erected 

Cashie Church has sent forth many strong and influential men to preach 
the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Among them Abram M. Poindexter and 
his half brother William Hill Jordan were both powerful preachers and most 
influential in establishing the North Carolina Baptist State Convention. 

It would take up too much space to extend the historical narrative further. 
The congregation is united and the church is doing the best work in its his- 
tory under the leadership of its pastor Charles C. Smith.

CONSTITUTION 



NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the North Carolina West Cho- 
wan Baptist Association. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Art. 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches 
connected with this body, and all ordained ministers who are members or 
pastors of said churches, together with the officers of this Association, and 
chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of one hundred members 
and under shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each additional one 
hundred members, an additional messenger; provided, that no church shall 
have more than four messengers. 

OBJECTS 

Art. 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend measures for 
increasing the harmony, the intelligence and the spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources 
and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom in the earth. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Art. 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sover- 
eignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legisla- 
tive council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches and recom- 
mend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but can not bind them in 
any way. Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of 
the body, it may justly claim for itself, for its objects and for its recom- 
mendation the very highest consideration and regard. 

Art. 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any church that 
becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice, or that fails to 
represent itself, either by messenger or letter, more than two successive 
sessions, without sufficient reasons, or that treats with contempt its objects 
and requirements, or upon application of a church for dismission. 

RIGHTS OF CHURCHES 

Art. 6. Each individual church shall hold and exercise all the functions 
of an independent church of Jesus Christ. As constituent members of this 
Association, the churches shall have right to advise, when desired, in case 
of difficulty, and suggest plans of usefulness to be adopted. It shall be the 
undisputed privilege of any church to withdraw its membership from this 
Association whenever it shall so elect. 

DUTIES OF CHURCHES 

Art. 7. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as messengers, as 
far as practicable, their most capable members, to require their attendance, 
and to send by them a contribution to the Association fund to pay for print- 
ing the minutes and other necessary expenses. 

Art. 8. It shall be the duty of each church to send an annual letter to the 
Association, giving: (1) locality; (2) names of its pastor and clerk and their 
respective postoffices; (3) the Sabbaths of regular service; (4) the church 
statistics, including the number baptized, received by letter, restored, dis-

erator, Clerk, Treasurer, and Historian, who shall be elected at each annual 
session, from the members of the Association, and shall continue in office 
until the next annual election, which election shall be the next order of 
business after the enrollment of messengers. As soon as the new officers 
shall have taken their seats, the body shall be declared organized and pre- 
pared for business. 

Art. 10. In order to conserve time and not interfere with the main work 
of the body, this Association will not consider any routine or miscellaneous 
business except at the close of the discussion of each general topic. 

DUTIES OF OFFICERS 

Art. 11. It shall be the duty of the Moderator to open the meetings 
punctually at time appointed; to enforce the rules; to enforce order, and 
to exercise all the prerogatives of a presiding officer, according to the 
principles of parliamentary usage. 

Art. 12. It shall be the duty of the Vice-Moderator to discharge the 
duties of the Moderator in his absence.

of same, and to keep on file the printed Minutes and other important docu- 
ments belonging to the body. He may appoint an assistant when necessary. 
The Clerk shall receive for his services fifty dollars out of the minute fund. 

Art. 14. It shall be the duty of the Treasurer to receive and disburse 
the money contributed to the Minute fund, as directed by the body, and 
make an annual report of the same. 

Art. 15. It shall be the duty of the Historian, who shall be elected at 
each annual meeting of the body, to prepare for publication in the Minutes 
an historical sketch of the church with which the Association meets, with 
obituaries, incidents, and other facts of the year that shall be preserved, 
and make report to the next Association. 

Art. 16. On the first day of the session there shall be appointed a 
committee of finance, committee on time, place and preacher, and a com- 
mittee of one from each county to nominate representatives of Boards and

and one woman from each of the counties.

body by a vote of two-thirds of the members present.

REPORT ON MISSIONS 
State Missions 

The State Mission enterprise in North Carolina is 94 years strong. It 
has the enthusiasm of youth, the strength of manhood, the wisdom of age. 

In this forward-looking, over-taxed age the exigencies of the religious 
life of our people are many and great. Religious destitution* must be corn- 
batted; souls must be saved; Bible study must be encouraged; our young 
people must be trained for service; missionary intelligence must be en- 
larged; concern for the spiritual welfare of our sons and daughters in state 
schools must be shown; many other interests must be regarded. 

To meet these needs our Board of Missions maintains 5 evangelists, 145 
missionary pastors, 5 all-time Sunday School workers, 4 all-time B. Y. P. U. 
workers, 4 all-time W. M. U. workers, 3 enlistment men and 3 student secre- 
taries in our three largest state colleges. 

Dr. Charles E. Maddry, of course, is Corresponding Secretary of the 
Board of Missions; Bro. E. L. Middleton is Secretary of the Sunday School 
Department; Bro. Perry Morgan is Secretary of the B. Y. P. U. Department, 
and Miss Mary Warren is Corresponding Secretary of W. M. U. 

These leaders, matchless though they be, must have our support in 
order to execute a forward-looking program in our State Mission work. 

At present the Board is hampered by a heavy debt. This should not be. 
All departments of this Board have been wonderfully blessed of the Lord.

As workers together with Him we must continue to give our sacrificial 
support. 

Foreign Missions 

Our Foreign Mission Board, located at Richmond, and supported by the 
Baptist churches of the South, is doing for the salvation of souls and the 
up-building of the Master's Kingdom in foreign lands just what our Board 
of Missions is doing for North Carolina. 

Last May the Board made its 80th annual report to the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention. 

The Board is doing mission work in fourteen nations, as follows: Africa, 
Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Hungary Italy. Japan, Jugo-Slavia, Mexico, 
Palestine and Syria, Roumania, Russia and Spain. There are 1,101 churches, 
291 of which are self-supporting. There are 2,899 out stations. There are 
539 missionaries and 2,443 native helpers. 

There were 12,134 baptisms last year, which is the largest number in 
any one year in the history of the Board. The total church membership re- 
ported last year was 117,923. 

The Board received from all sources last year $1,405,265.88 and re- 
ported a debt of $1,250,792.45, which had been some years in accumulating. 

Our missionaries are human, and report that they meet with many diffi- 
culties — sometimes having their own lives threatened. They are heroes and 
heroines, and God is honoring their loyalty even as He honored the Apostle 
to the Gentiles long ago. 

While the successes of our missionaries have been most glorious yet it 
is sad to report that because of debt and because of the lack of funds, more 
than 100 volunteers have, during the past year, been refused the privilege 
of carrying the gospel to a lost world. For two years workers on the For- 
eign Field have been denied needed equipment. No wonder some of our 
missionaries are breaking down in health and forced to resign — some are 
dying. Even though individuals are supporting 25 new missionaries, there 
are fewer missionaries on the foreign field today than a year ago. "Is there 
no balm in Gilead?" We answer YES. Loyalty to Christ prd cA-^perPtfon 
in supporting the program suggested by our leaders will solve this and all 
other demands on our denominational enterprises.

Home Missions 

In studying the work of our Home Mission Board we view a faithfui 
conquest of 17 States, the District of Columbia, Cuba and Panama. In this 
vast territory the Board has 1.250 workers employed. These workers seek 
to administer to 4,250,000 foreigners, 500,000 Jews, and 161,941 Indians. A 
part of the success of their last year's administrations is shown by 29,930 
baptisms. The Board's future is unlimited in possibilities but crippled in 
resources. Instead of the necessary increase in its force of workers it has 
been compelled by financial want to decrease its number; instead of adding 
its wanted equipment it is forced to abandon sites of advantage for schools 
and missions. Its assets are shadowed by a debt exceeding $1,100,000. May 
God inspire us to the rescue of His faithful instrument, The Home Mission 
Board.

FORTY-THIRD ANNUAL SESSION 



Report of Woman's Work 

As we review the year's work of the Woman's Missionary Union of the 
West Chowan Association, we can but say in the words of the prophet, 
"The Lord hath done wondrously, whereof we are glad." 

One of the strong points of this Association is Mission Study. This is 
very encouraging, for we realize that without information, there can be no 
inspiration, and as we study so will we pray and so will we give. 

Our greater emphasis upon Mission Study in the past five years has 
wrought large returns. As our women have studied the thrilling and in- 
spirational lives of our missionaries, and have learned the needs of their 
countries, their hearts have been filled with a burning desire to give of their 
best for the Master. 

Under the capable leadership of Miss White, the women of West Chowan 
are supporting one missionary and two Bible women in China. They also 
have three scholarships in the training school. Several of the societies, 
this year, have sent boxes of supplies to some of our mission schools. 
Personal service is another strong point in this Association. 

Many of our societies who do not report their activities are participat- 
ing in this delightful Christian service. 

Now, as we have seen through the year's accomplishments God's smiling 
favor upon our labor, let us more deeply, more earnestly than ever before, 
reconsecrate ourselves, our gifts, and all that we have for His service, and 
determine that in the coming year we will be in a truer sense "Laborers 
together with God," and know that God is able to bless us more abundantly.

Report on Education was presented by C. M. Billings and 
received and ordered to be printed without reading. This re- 
port follows : 

REPORT ON EDUCATION 

r25 

The life of a nation depends upon its schools. The value of a school 
depends upon its ideals. The ideals of a school have their highest worth 
only as they are Christian It is the duty of the churches to make these 
ideals dominant in education. 

To this end, North Carolina Baptists have inaugurated a broad and 
systematic educational program. They are undertaking to maintain in this 
state Wake Forest, Meredith and Chowan. From last reports, Wake Forest 
enrolled 1,171, 701 of these in the regular session, including 93 ministerial 
students and 4 volunteers for the foreign field; the two women colleges 
enrolled together 584, including 20 student volunteers. The combined prop- 
erty value of the three, including plants, equipment and endowments, is 
$3,545,071. 

Our two junior colleges, Mars Hill and Wingate, enrolled 782, including 
68 ministerial students and 50 student volunteers. Their property value 
was $433,940. 



14 



FORTY-THIRD ANNUAL SESSION 



Our two high schools, Buie's Creek and Boiling Springs enrolled 1,018, 
including 65 ministerial students and 23 student volunteers. Their property 
value is $361,340. We also have 149 high school students in the Thomasville 
Orphanage. 

Our Home Mission Board maintains six high schools which enrolled 
972 students, including 43 ministerial students arid eight volunteers. Their 
property value was $431,118. 

South-wide institutions enrolled 1,186 students. Their property is val- 
ued at $4,249,881. It is for the maintenance of these institutions, State and 
South-wide, that our Education Board is laboring. Since 1900, Baptist 
schools in the South have increased from 65 to 118, students from 11,130 to 
38,000, property and endowment from 7^ to 40 millions. 

While the $5,000,000.00, in round numbers, which we have invested in 
school property in this state seems a large sum, it is small in comparison 
with the many millions invested in state schools, and the few thousands 
which we raise annually for our schools is a trifling sum when compared 
with the state's annual appropriations to her high schools, colleges and 
university. In addition to maintaining these institutions themselves, we 
are helping to support about 200 of our 374 young ministerial students, who 
are being trained in them; on these we expend about $15,000 a year. 

The necessity for maintaining our schools, great as it has been in the 
past, must increase rather than diminish for the future for the following 
reasons: 

1st. Because our institutions must be kept in the front rank along 
with those of the State in the cultural training that they give, or we cannot 
hope to keep our Baptist boys and girls in our schools. 

2nd. Heretofore, practically nine-tenths of our educated ministers and 
missionaries have come out of our Baptist institutions; and in the nature 
of the case, these still must be trained in our schools or nowhere. More- 
over, the State is rapidly enlarging and strengthening her educational pro- 
gram, and compelling all her children to be educated. This, of course, 
means a much more intelligent membership in our churches, and that we 
must educate a still larger proportion of our ministers and leaders; for an 
educated membership will demand an educated leadership. 

3rd. Because of the tendency of some students of science to attack 
the Bible from the standpoint of science, we must train our God-fearing men 
and women to meet these scientists on their own ground, and while pur- 
suing all knowledge in all realms, to relate all knowledge and all science 
to God Almighty. 

4th. The denominational schools emphasize not only the religious spirit 
but the denominational principles as well, and thus they help to enlighten 
and strengthen their students in respect to our distinctive doctrines, and 
also to enlist them loyally in our Baptist enterprises. Baptist schools are 
making more effort today than ever before to so train the young people 
who come to them that when they go back to their home churches they may 
prove useful and efficient members. The study of the Bible is required, 
provision is made for training in B. Y. P. U., and Sunday School work, and 
the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness is exalted in campus and in 
class rooms. In short, an atmosphere and an environment is created in 
which the Spirit of Christ is dominant. It is only in such an atmosphere 
that the growing life may develop into a well rounded personality. 

Sunday Schools 

The Sunday School Board's report to the last session of the Southern 
Baptist Convention gives our State 2,181 Sunday Schools with a member- 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 15 

ship of 287,466. Texas leads in schools and membership. Georgia reports 
eleven more schools but 30,839 less in membership than North Carolina. 
She has 300 more churches than we have. In churches and Sunday School 
membership we are ahead of all the other States. 

It is distressing that American Sunday Schools had a loss in 1924, but 
Southern Baptists had one of their best gains by adding 155,000 to their 
former membership. Our North Carolina gain for 1924 was 12,269. In five 
years we have gained 73,048. 

The work is going well along all lines. Besides membership gains 
there were marked improvements in organization, buildings and equipment, 
teacher training, and working for the Standard of Excellence. This standard 
is being recognized as a program of work and not something technical. 

The following facts regarding our own association need our consid- 
eration: 

In spite of all hopeful signs we need to keep before us big things to do. 
For our great State we want to join the other sixty-three associations in 
doing the following things: 

1. Put a Sunday School in every church and run it twelve months in 
the year. 

2. Add 25,000 people to our Sunday School rolls in 1926 and press on 
until there are as many in our Sunday Schools as in our churches. 

3. Earn 3,000 Normal Diplomas and 7,000 Seals for other books studied 
in our Normal Course. 

4. Reach 100 Standard Schools, thus having a well balanced program 
of work in these schools. 

5. Start the work of the Daily Vacation Bible School in our midst. 
This new movement is worthy of our best efforts. 

6. Never forget our greatest and holiest task of trying to win the lost 
to Christ. Thousands of unsaved are in our midst. 

We urge all pastors, superintendents, teachers and other workers to 
secure full and free information from our State Sunday School Secretary, 
E. L. Middleton, Raleigh, North Carolina. 

B. Y. P. U. 

In the training of our young people lies the hope of the future of our 
churches. No department of our church work has a greater appeal for the 
young people than has the B. Y. P. U., when properly conducted. 

Our Sunday School Board has recognized the value of this work and 
is giving it equal advantages and encouragement both in literature and 
working force as is given the Sunday Schools. 

In our State and in this Association great things are being accomplished. 
Our Association leads the State in this work. 

We shall hail the day when we shall have a man who shall give his 
entire time to this Association in developing our Sunday School and B. Y. 
P. U. work. This is an imperative need. 

Dr. W. R. Cullom addressed the association on Education, 
and Dr. W. R. Burrell spoke in the interest of Chowan College. 
J. H. Matthews presented the following report from the Board 
of Trustees of Chowan College: 



16 



FORTY-THIRD ANNUAL SESSION 



The Board of Trustees of -Chowan College, in regular semi-annual meet- 
ing held at the College on Tuesday, October 13, 1925, makes the following 
report to the West Chowan Association: 

To the Moderator and Brethren of the West Chowan Association: 

The trustees of Chowan College beg leave to submit this special report 
on the financial condition of the College: 

For years it has been the hope and purpose of this Board and of this 
Association that the College should be properly equipped and endowed, and 
that it should be given its proper rating as one of the denominational 
standard senior colleges. The Seventy-five Million Campaign enabled us 
somewhat to realize those hopes and purposes so far as physical equipment 
is concerned. 

The amount set apart out of that fund for permanent and other im- 
provement was partially adequate for the purpose of those improvements, 
and from time to time your Board of Trustees confidently expect to make 
such additions as the total funds appropriated to the College will justify. 
Having in part made such improvements and necessary provisions for teach- 
ers and student body, the next step of your Board was to raise the standard 
and grade of the College to a Standard Senior College as authorized by 
this Association at its meeting held at Kelford in 1921. 

In the efforts to raise the grade of the College to a Standard Senior 
College, and to receive official recognition of the State Board of Education, 
so that our graduates would rank in educational and other work with the 
graduates from similar colleges in the State, and in order to meet the re- 
quirements of the State Board of Education, it became necessary that Cho- 
wan College should have an income of a permanent character from a stable 
source outside of the current receipts of the institution, in an amount not 
less than fifteen thousand dollars, annually. Our income from endowment 
and invested funds of a permanent character belonging to the College, is 
around fifteen hundred dollars annually. 

After conference between your Board of Trustees and the Baptist 
Board of Education, that Board, recognizing the justice of the claims of 
Chowan College, approved the raising of the standard of the College to a 
Standard Senior College, and set apart the sum of $13,750.00 annually to 
be paid to Chowan College as permanent income for the purpose of attaining 
the rating as a Standard Senior College, in order to meet the requirements 
of the State Department of Education. This having been done, the State Board 
of Education and the State Superintendent of that Board, accepted the same 
in good faith and based upon it, raised the rating of Chowan College to a 
Standard Senior College, and it is now maintaining that standard. We do 
not need to call attention to the impetus given the College in every way by 
such rating, nor to the splendid work it is doing resulting therefrom. 

The amount appropriated by the Baptist Board of Education from the 
funds going into its hands for our educational institutions in the State, was 
$13,750.00 for the calendar year of 1925. There has been paid up to date 
on this first year's income so fixed, the sum of $2,500.00. Your trustees find 
themselves embarrassed by such shortage. The work of the College has 
been projected on the expectation that the full amount so appropriated by 
the Baptist Board of Education would be paid, and based upon such ex- 
pectation an able faculty was secured. Unless the deficiency in income is 
met, then the work of the College must be limited and the grade must be 
reduced. We are sure that the Baptists in North Carolina and especially 
those in the West Chowan Association strongly protest against either 
course. The State Board of Education will not continue the present rating 
of the College as a Standard Senior College unless that income is met. To 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



17 



maintain the grade and work of the College at its present high standard, 
your trustees must have assurance of permanent annual receipt from our 
Baptist Board of Education, or some other stable source, of the promised 
sum of $13,750.00. 

Your Board of Trustees heartily concurred placing Chowan College, with 
other denominational institutions, under the control of the Baptist State 
Convention and of the Baptist Board of Education. We are sure it is better 
for the College to remain under such control and general direction and the 
Board of Trustees earnestly desire that this be done. To do so, we 
respectfully and fraternally urge that those funds should be made available 
in order to meet the necessary expenses of the College. 

We respectfully submit, however, that if the Baptist Board of Education 
finds it impossible to pay to the College the annual amount so apportioned, 
in order to meet the requirements of the State Board of Education and to 
maintain the present standard, it will be necessary to have such income 
guaranteed and paid from some other available source. Not to do so means 
that the work of the College must be limited and its grade must be reduced. 

We fraternally submit this statement to the West Chowan Association 
and ask your directions. We feel sure that the approaching State Conven- 
tion will meet our reasonable expectations based upon the facts set out 
herein. 

Fraternally yours, 

J. H. MATTHEWS, 

Chairman Board of Trustees. 

A resolution for carrying this into effect was offered and 
after some discussion was postponed till after dinner for fur- 
ther discussion. 

Dr. J. F. Love was recognized and at this hour addressed 
the association on Foreign Missions. 

The report on Social Service, prepared by J. L. Powers, 
was presented, received, adopted and ordered printed without 
reading. The report is as follows: 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 

Social service is a fruit of Christianity. The Orphanage, Hospitals and 
Ministers' Relief are phases of social service work. The cry of suffering 
and need is heard from many quarters. Baptists are answering the c 
only in a limited way. 

The first item is our Orphanage "Pure religion and undefiled before 
God and the Father is this: To visit the father'ess and widows in their 
affliction and to keep himself unspotted from the world." — James 1:27. 
In this passage James not only makes the orphanage work fundamental in 
our Christian activities, but that in itself it is the purest expression of 
practical religion. The Scripture therefore places the orphanage work as 
first, and as fundamental in our church and religious life. We cannot, 
therefore, place too great emphasis upon this most worthy object. 

We are gratified in noting the warm place the Orphanage holds in the 
hearts of our people. We have always contributed to its support. We have 



18 



FORTY- THIRD ANNUAL SESSION 



observed from the Treasurer's report that there is a falling off of contribu- 
tions since our Thanksgiving offering last fall. The number of children at 
the Orphanage is 602; Thomasville, 492; Kennedy Home, 110. The number 
of children aided in their homes with their mothers is 343. The annual 
cost per child is $284.40. Every need of the child has been taken into 
consideration and provision has been made for him to be cared for and 
well trained. Owing to the great need we, your committee, would recom- 
mend: 

First: That each Sunday School devote one Sunday in each month to 
the work of the Orphanage. Organize for giving by classes. Let each class 
decide on how much it will give once a month by getting a personal sub- 
scription from each member of the class. 

Second: Once a year at the Thanksgiving time, let all the forces work 
for a thank offering from every man, woman and child amounting to at 
least "One Day's Work" for the Orphanage. 

Hospitals 

More than 100 Protestant hospitals have been established since the 
convention in Washington five years ago. Thousands of sick would not be 
ministered to were it not for the work done by these institutions. 

Our hospital at Winston-Salem is the child of the Baptist State Conven- 
tion, built, owned and maintained by the Baptist people of North Carolina. 
There were 1,600 patients from June 30, 1924, to June 30, 1925. They came 
from every quarter of the State, as far east as Elizabeth City, and as far 
west as Murphy. These were for the most part parents with several chil- 
dren. An estimate was made showing that at least one-half could not have 
gotten well without the hospital. They had about 250 children at home 
depending on them. Had we not cared for them these 250 children would 
now have been orphans to have been cared for at a great cost. This shows 
how the hospital saves the homes, and saves the Orphanage several thou- 
sands of dollars. 

The hospital has been compelled to ask churches sending patients to 
pay a part of the bill for charity patients, one-half if possible. The Mother's 
Day offering lacked $3,000.00 of taking care of the work already done. The 
hospital does not seek to make money but to make a great home of healing 
for our sick, where love, sympathy and Christian gentleness will be the 
crowning virtues. The nurses are taught that all must be done for Christ's 
sake and the sick must be the center of their thoughts and prayers. 

We urge our people who are able to pay their bills to go to their own 
hospital, because they can give you the best, and because the larger number 
of pay patients they have, the greater amount of charity work they can do. 
Twenty thousand dollars is necessary to continue the work of healing for 
the suffering poor. Mother's Day offerings will be their only hope to pro- 
vide the benefits. Shall we give that they may live? 

Ministerial Relief 

We are glad to report that many of our ministers are receiving help 
from the Relief Board. We urge that our people as a whole take more 
interest in this worthy cause. We should feel grateful that there is a way 
provided by which these worthy servants of God, who have made so many 
sacrifices, can receive help at a time when it is so much needed. 

There are hundreds of our old ministers who are very poor, who never 
knew anything of the luxuries of life. To these dear old soldiers of the 
cross our denomination owes a debt it can never pay in full, but we have 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



19 



an opportunity through our Aged Ministers' Relief Board to make a partial 
payment thereon, and the call comes to us. What shall our answer be? 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. L. POWERS, 

G. D. LEGGETT, 

W. R. BURRELL., Committee. 

E. N. Gardner of Thomasville was recognized and spoke on 
the Thomasville Orphanage as an enterprise in Kingdom build- 
ing. Adjourned for dinner. 

AFTERNOON SESSION 

A. W. H. Jones conducted a short devotional service and 
discussion of the Chowan resolution was resumed. M. P. Davis, 
L. E. Dailey, C. M. Billings, E. Y. Poole, D. P. Harris, O. 
Creech, J. H. Matthews and others spoke. The time for dis- 
cussion was extended, some amendments offered and finally 
the resolution was withdrawn and a committee composed of 
J. H. Matthews, R. B. Lineberry and Dr. W. R. Burrell was 
appointed to bring this matter before the Baptist State Con- 
vention and the Baptist State Board of Education, this associa- 
tion to be called in later session if necessary to provide for 
carrying into effect the purpose of the resolution. The report 
on Education was adopted. 

Dr. W. R. Burrell read the following on Hospitpls, which 
was adopted : 

FACTS ABOUT THE HOSPITAL 
For the Fiscal Year Closing June 1st 

There were 1,600 patients admitted to the hospital, 225 of these were 
charity, or part-pay, and the cost of caring for these averaged $40.00 each. 
That is the amount the denomination was required to spend for their care 
and healing in addition to the small payments made hy a part of these or 
their friends. To save human lives and prevent the tragedy of broken 
homes at the rate of $40.00 each is the most economical benevolence open 
to our Baptist people. 

There were 24 deaths, or a death rate of 1V 2 per cent. This is the 
lowest on record in the United States. Since our opening our death record 
has been the lowest in the state. Surely the Great Physician is caring for 
those who come to His own hospital, and it will always be so because the 
.atmosphere is Christlike. 

Here we invite the Great Phyisician; here we pray for Divine guidance. 
Here we minister in love, and all this has a wonderful effect on the patient. 

The patronage outside of Winston-Salem is growing, but not as rapidly 
as we had hoped. We need to impress the Baptist people that our hospital 



20 



FORTY-THIRD ANNUAL SESSION 



is one of the greatest in the country and is unsurpassed in efficiency in the 
South. We have the equipment and the skillful physicians to make 
the hospital the very Mecca of our sick. We need to have more of the pay 
patients to come to our hospital, because they will help to finance the insti- 
tution in its infancy and in the days of its crises. 

It requires about $6,250.00 per month to meet the expenses of this great 
plant. We must have this much money or go in debt. You can readily see 
that we must have many pay patients, as we are borrowing all of our 
charity and will have to do that until next Mothers' Day in May. 

Were it not for the pay patients from Winston-Salem and surrounding 
country we would go out of business in a few months. We plead for greater 
patronage. 

We need a nurses' home. This is imperative. We are using one-third 
of our private rooms for nurses' quarters, thus robbing us of a great 
source of income. We are also renting a building. The cost of rent and 
upkeep is $2,500 per year. The girls have crowded quarters and we must 
relieve this situation at an early date. 

We offer great Christian service and ministry. We have one of the . 
best equipped and most commodious, attractive hospitals in the land. We 
have a location unsurpassed in beauty and healthfulness. We have as fine 
a staff of physicians as can be found. We are prepared to give you service. 
We, therefore, urge you to come. 

We want to care for all the charity that apply to us and we are doing 
this. At present we are asking the churches sending patients to assume a 
part of the cost of the patient sent. This enables us to care for a far 
greater number, for if the church will care for an amount equal to $25.00 
per patient, it would enable us to increase the number of charity patients 
about 200 each year. 

We crave your sympathy, your prayers, your enthusiastic advertisement 
at all times. Help us put this great institution on the hearts of our people 
and thus co-operate in saving hundreds of lives and relieving much suffering. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. R. BURRELL. 

Owing to the lateness of the hour, the subject of Ministerial 
Relief was not discussed. 

C. C. Smith read a report on the Digest of Letters, which 
was received as information. 

Historian offered the following report, which was adopted: 

THE HISTORIAN'S REPORT 

As your Historian came to this Association twenty years ago, he wishes 
to make a comparison between then and now that we may know the growth 
and development in our Association during the past one-fifth of a century. 

Twenty years ago there were in our Association 49 churches; now we 
have 58. Then there were 10,696 members; now we have 14,438. 

In the year 1905 671 were baptized. This year the church letters show 
549 baptized. Then there were in our Sunday Schools 4,595; now we 
have 9,774. 

All of our churches had Sunday Scho,ols then as now, but there were 
only four churches with classrooms, and so far as I remember no church 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



21 



had more than two classrooms. Now 42 of our churches have classrooms, 
though a few still have only one or two. 

Twenty years ago there were no B. Y. P. U's. in our Association. Now 
we have sixty-two in forty-four churches out of the fiftyVeight. The year 
now ending has been a year of great expansion in the B. Y. P. U. work 
under the direction of H. G. Bryant, who has given much time and thought 
to the work without financial remuneration. 

Meherrin Church has had two standard unions, without a break, for 
four years. For three years this church has held one of the state banners. 
Hebron Church now holds the state intermediate banner and Ashley's Grove 
held the senior one year. 

Our Association has held the state banner for the past two years. 

Twenty years ago there were but few societies of the W. M. U., though 
37 churches had missionary societies composed of men and women, but they 
had no program or study courses, only paid dues. Now there are 146 socie- 
ties giving a program each month and many study one or more books on 
missions each year. 

Twenty years ago there were only four pastors' homes in our Associa- 
tion. Now we have 17, Republican Church having built a $4,000.00 home 
this year and Pastor and Mrs. J. L. Powers are now enjoying its comforts. 

Twenty years ago we had no church with preaching every Sunday. Now 
we have six. Then there were only 11 churches with preaching two Sundays 
a month. Now we have 38. Then all our church buildings were of wood. 
Now we have six brick buildings, and Brantly's Grove has let the contract 
for a brick veneer building with six classrooms. Robert's Chapel, whose 
building was burned last December, has adopted plans for a $15,000.00 brick 
building with 14 classrooms. Colerain Church is erecting a $10,000.00 Sun- 
day School addition to her fine auditorium. Though this is of wood, when 
completed no church in our Association will have a better plant to do the 
work of God than this church. 

Twenty years ago the highest salary paid by any church was $400.00. 
Now the highest is $2,750.00. Then the total amount paid by all the churches 
for pastor's salary and all other home expenses was $14,289.98. Now our 
churches pay for home work $69,0.52.08. Then the total gifts for all missions

FORTY-THIRD ANNUAL. SESSION 



R. B. Lineberry reports the death of four from Mt. Tabor Church — two 
brothers, A. P. and G. Q. Parker, ages 81 and 72 respectively, also Mrs. 
G. M. Blowe and J. V. Copeland. Miss Dora Liverman, one of Winton's most 
faithful members was called home. 

Woodland Baptist Church 

Pastor C. M. Billings gives the following history of Woodland Baptist 
Church: 

Woodland Baptist Church was organized June 22, 1902, with thirty-nine 
male members and twenty-six female members. 

Rev. E. J. Harrell was the first pastor and it was under his ministry 
that the present meeting house was built at a cost of $1,600.00. The building 
was completed in June, 1904, and was dedicated the first Sunday in October 
of the same year, Rev. C. W. Scarborough preaching the sermon and Rev. 

B. J. Harrell leading the dedication prayer. The growth of the church has 
been along sane and permanent lines, until very few remain in the com- 
munity unidentified with some church. 

The church has always been loyal to every denominational interest and 
has come to be one of our best village churches. The membership is made 
up of as fine people as are to be found in the Association. 

The following have served the church as pastors: E. J. Harrell, E. W. 
Waltz, C. W. Scarborough (two terms), J. W r Downey, J. F. Cale, V. E. 
Duncan, and the present pastor, C. M. Billings. 

The church met its 75 Million Campaign in full.

WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



23 



Whereas, our Association, as such, does almost no functioning between 
its annual sessions; and, 

Whereas, frequently there arises the opportunity for the Executive Com- 
mittee to do some special work among our churches in ways that would be 
beneficial to a large part of the Association, but the opportunity has to be 
"passed up" because of the lack of available funds; and, 

Whereas, the Association, at its 1924 session, expressed itself as favor- 
able to the employment of a full-time field worker for B. Y. P. U. and 
Sunday School work within the Association's territory; and that the need 
of at least one such worker is generally recognized among our people, yet, 
because no funds have been provided for this purpose, it has not been 
feasible for a worker to be procured; therefore, be it resolved, 

First, that the Association does hereby create a department of its work 
to be called "Associational Missions"; and that churches and individuals be 
invited to contribute regularly to the support of this department. 

Second, that the object of the department of Associational Missions is 
to foster and have such work done within the bounds of the territory of 
the Association as may be calculated to increase the efficiency of the 
churches, to deepen the spiritual lives of individuals, and to lead the lost 
to Christ. 

Third, that the department of Associational Missions be under the 
charge, direction and management of the Executive Committee of the 
Association. This committee shall have authority to employ such person 
or persons to prosecute its work as may seem wise to the committee. 

Fourth, the Executive Committee, in carrying on the work of Associa- 
tional Missions, shall not incur expenses beyond moneys in its treasury, or 
that have been guaranteed by reliable persons or agencies; and the com- 
mittee shall not go in debt, or borrow money, on account of the work of 
Associational Missions. 

Fifth, that all funds contributed to said Associational Missions shall be 
paid to the Treasurer of this Association and disbursed by him on order 
of the chairman of the Executive Committee. 

C. C. Smith, for committee to answer A. V. Cobb's ques- 
tion, submitted the following, which was adopted: 

Your committee appointed to formulate a reply to a question asked of 
the Association yesterday in which the advice of this body was asked as 
to how churches should deal with a member who made a subscription to 
the 75 Million Campaign, who is able to pay his pledge, and yet refuses 
to do so, submits the following report: 

Inasmuch as during the years of the campaign, when tbis member was 
not paying regularly, neither in weekly, monthly or annual instalments, 
anything on his pledge, and the church did not then discipline him; and now 
practically a year after the period of the campaign has ended, he still has 
not been disciplined, it is the opinion of the members of this committee that 
discipline to the extent of withdrawing church fellowship from him should 
not be enforced. 

However, in view of the fact that such conduct is both a direct violation 
of covenant of the church and an inexcusable repudiation of a personal 
obligation voluntarily made, we recommend that, inasmuch as many 
churches have some members of this kind in their field, when a church sees 
fit, and deems wise, it will be perfectly proper to pass a general resolution 
deploring and condemning such an attitude as is indicated by the question. 



24 



FORTY-THIRD ANNUAL SESSION 



The committee furthermore suggests that churches deal individually 
with such people in a very loving manner, endeavoring to enlist them all in 
hearty and active co-operation in the full program of our denomination. 



J. P. Essex offered the following resolution as to Foreign 
Missions, and it was adopted: 

Resolved: That the West Chowan Association, in annual session, assure 
the Foreign Mission Board of our sympathy and of our unwillingness that 
the Board withdraw from any mission field and that we assure the State 
Convention that if it approves the recent action of the Foreign Board and 
make a special effort to relieve the Board, this Association will co-operate 
heartily. 

J. P. Essex announced that Seaboard had invited the Union 
Meeting for Friday and Saturday before the fifth Sunday in 
November, and the association voted its approval. 

C. H. Jenkins, for Committee on Place and Preacher, re- 
ported as follows: 

TIME — Tuesday after fourth Sunday in October, 1926. 
PLACE — Christian Harbor. 

TO PREACH INTRODUCTORY SERMON— C. M. Billings or A. W. H. 



Adopted. 

A. Finch, for Committee on Order of Business, offered a 
report, which was received but ordered not to be published till 



On motion of J. H. Evans the association extended a rising 
vote of thanks to Woodland church and community for their 
generous hospitality and many courtesies. 

H. G. Bryant, for the committee, awarded the Sunday 
School Banner to Sunday School of Bethany church.

Mrs. C. C. Hoggard being detained on account of illness, 
a discussion on "Needs of Our Association" was omitted. Miss 
Pearce led in prayer for Mrs. Hoggard. 

Mrs. C. W. Parker of Menola brought a real message of 
missions with a solo. 

Mrs. W. N. Jones of Raleigh, President of the State W. M. 
U., sounded the keynote of the Union through her great ad- 
dress on "Prayer." She first explained the change in our 
calendar year ending on December 31st, and urged all reports 
be sent in by that time. Her great message started with "The 
harvest truly is plenteous but laborers few; therefore pray." 
She showed our Master's great source of power was through 
prayer; thereby showing our dependence in prayer, our great 
privilege to pray; our great need for prayer, especially since the 
task is so great to live up to our last five years' vision. She 
gave a picture of what lack of prayer had brought on us. The 
climax of the address was an appeal for greater service through 
prayer. 

Miss Leona Harris, field worker for two months in North- 
ampton County, gave a report on her work. 

The appointment of committees was read. 

Rev. T. E. Walters gave a most cordial invitation to every 
one to lunch served on the church grounds and then pronounced 
the benediction. 

AFTERNOON SESSION 

Mrs. C. C. Smith, Junior Superintendent, presiding. The 
afternoon session opened with song, "Halleluiah! Thine To 
Glory." Miss Beatrice Burrell of Murfreesboro conducted the 
devotional exercises, reading the 46th Psalm. Her appeal and 
explanation for more consecrated leaders was interspersed with 
appropriate hymns, sung by Miss Nancy Parker. Roll call of 
Junior Societies was omitted as registration was made at 
morning service. 

Minutes of morning session were read and adopted.

FORTY-THIRD ANNUAL SESSION 



Dr. W. R. Burrell of Murfreesboro was presented and made 
a forciful appeal for Chowan College, telling of its growth and 
advantage. He made the Union realize the importance of 
Christian Education for the continual growth and development 
of the denomination. 

Mrs. H. M. Finch of Rocky Mount was next presented. 
Her great message was built around the Scripture verse, 
''Come and let us reason together." She urged that we reason 
about our Board's condition. She begged for consecration and 
surrender to do Home Missions by enlisting ourselves and then 
enlisting the one next to us. She gave encouragement by her 
optimistic, consecrated plea for giving more of our lives and 
tithes to the Master's storehouse. 

Mrs. C. W. Parker followed the message with a solo, "Oh! 
Merciful Father." 

Miss Pearl Harris of Weldon brought a message of truths 
in a "Four Fold Call to Young People." She said God does 
not draft people but accomplishes His work only through love. 
His first call is "Love," and His next call is "Loyalty," even 
though it brings criticism and (sacrifice. The third call is 
"Service," and the fourth call is "Consecration." She plead for 
each, especially the young people, to start right and give their 
all and all to God. 

Mrs. J. T. Ingram, a missionary from India, in native cos- 
tume, gave a message on customs, dress, superstitions, man- 
ners, education and ^religions of India. 

Mrs. C. C. Smith brought up the question of the advisa- 
bility of continuing the Chowan Assembly. A motion was 
made and carried that a petition be sent to the State Conven- 
tion that the assembly be continued at a suitable time.

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 
Orphanage Report 

Our Baptist People of North Carolina have always manifested the deep- 
est interest in the welfare of helpless and dependent children. The Orphan- 
age occupies a high and honorable place in their associational and conven- 
tion programs. It is never sidetracked or ignored in our general meetings. 

From the beginning of its history more than forty years ago, it has been 
a cherished object in our church life, and its grip on the hearts of our people 
grows with the passing years. From a trickling stream it has become a 
broad, deep river requiring a vast outlay to meet the necessities of its ever 
widening work. 

Five hundred and eighty-seven children, including those at the Kennedy 
Home, were enrolled in the Orphanage in the last report. Besides di- 
rectly under the care of the institution there are 373 being assisted under 
the "Mother's Aid" plan. The first families aided under this plan was in 
the year 1920; since then help has been given to 550 children. The per 
capita cost of aiding these children is $5.22 per month, while the cost of 
maintaining those at the Orphanage, including everything, is $24.92 per 
capita per month. 

The Orphanage school has eleven grades running from the kindergar- 
ten up. Above the nursery age all the boys and girls have duties — one half 
the day being devoted to school and the other half to domestic, field and 
mechanical work. A well organized church, with an active and consecrated 
young pastor, furnishes a fine opportunity for the development of the moral 
and religious life of the community. Cultivation of the missionary spirit in 
Sunday School, B. Y. P. U., Missionary Society, Sunbeam Bands and other 
agencies is especially emphasized. 

Since the fervor of the 75 million campaign has passed contributions to 
the current fund have fallen off, last year's receipts being $30,000 less than 
the year before. The Treasurer has been compelled to pay interest on bor- 
rowed money for the past two years. 

We urge our Sunday Schools to increase their monthly collections, and 
our churches to enlarge the Thanksgiving offerings; that every Sunday 
School take Charity and Children on the club plan, and that all our people 
give one day's income to the institution or a special thank offering.

FORTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 



Report on Hospital 

Only time and space limit the wonderful story of healing and mercy the 
Baptist Hospital has to tell. 

Five thousand patients, nearly one thousand of these either charity or 
part pay. Fathers, mothers and children from the country and town have 
come and we have received them all. Their plea was heart breaking. We 
tried to help and for the most part sent them back well and happy. Verily 
in these months the blind see, the lame walk, the deaf hear and the poor 
have the Gospel preached to them. 

During the last year there were about 1,800 patients, over 400 of these 
were charity. These came from every part of the State. While this report 
is before me there are patients from Sylva, Mount Airy, Furches, Weldon, 
Norwood, Durham, Henderson, Sanford, Macon, Granite Falls, Marshall, Bur- 
lington and other points closer to our city. These cases cost the Hospital 
around $20,000 00. The number of charity grows every year. It looks as if 
we will have to care for 500 this year, or turn many worthy ones away to 
die. The question is, which one must we send back. 

To pay for this $20,000.00 of charity we have received up to July 1st 
about $12,000.00 from all Mother's Day offerings. We start this year with 
no funds for the needs of charity and a debt on hand for what we have been 
doing. It is a pity to turn these good Baptist people away just because 
they are poor and our Baptist churches will not hear their cry. 

We have wonderful accommodations and facilities for helping the sick. 
We have a death record that demonstrates the power of prayer in healing 
the sick and yet our people cannot come because our churches have not 
observed Mother's Day and offered to help care for them. 

We shall be compelled to turn down numbers of these worthy ones un- 
less something is done or somebody rises up and supplies the needed funds. 
It is impossible to do this work without funds. We must pay our nurses, 
we must provide food, proper comforts, all the necessities of running a great 
institution. We must have the support of our people, or the Hospital can- 
not exist. What shall we do with these numbers who call from all over 
the State? Your contributions will be the answer. 

The budget funds are far too small to meet the debts on the building 
which come due this year. No hope can we have from that source. It is 
Mother's Day offering, or some other day's offering in the Sunday School or 
they die. 

We plead for your prayers, your support and your offerings, both in 
sending pay patients and in giving us contributions to help the poor. 

Our women are trying to build a Nurses' Home. We need this greatly. 
It would increase our revenue and much enlarge the opportunities for caring 
for charity cases. You men help the women and let's give our girls a place 
to stay. You will open to the public 21 extra beds and no one can tell the 
far reaching good this may be to the suffering Baptists of the State who 
long to come. 

Come to our rescue, save us from starving in our infancy and we will 
bless you in the years to come with a glorious service. 

Report on Ministerial Relief and Annuities 

The Relief and Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, 
through its relief fund and its annuity fund, is grappling with a great and 
growing prablem of providing for ministers, their widows and dependent 
orphans in the best possible way. This Board is located in Dallas, Texas, 
and has made rapid progress in the work committed to it and there is a 
growing appreciation of its work on the part of the brotherhood throughout 
the South. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



11 



The Relief Fund 

The permanent relief fund is still under $600,000.00 and the relief bene- 
ficiaries are receiving on an average less than $150.00 per year. To provide 
properly for nearly 1,200 beneficiaries of this fund, the Board must have a 
very much larger income. Still the amount that we now distribute to aged 
and infirm ministers and to widows and dependent orphans of ministers is 
bringing peace of mind and a degree of comfort to these denominational 
wards that is justifiably gratifying. 

The Annuity Fund 

Members of the annuity fund who have reached their sixty-eighth birth- 
day or who have become permanently disabled, are receiving the maximum 
amount promised in the membership certificate, namely $500.00 per year. 

Increased Provision Planned 

The action of the Southern Baptist Convention, which met in Houston, 
Texas, in May last, in adopting the New Service Annuity Plan, as recom- 
mended by the special Laymen's Committee and by the Relief and Annuity 
Board itself, has been hailed with great satisfaction by thousands of our 
ministers and by the brotherhood generally. The provisions of this plan 
mark a distinct advance in the work of Ministerial Relief and the carry- 
ing out of these provisions will give to every participating minister, the 
widows and dependent orphans of participating ministers, within the bounds 
of the Southern Baptist Convention, a support worthy of our great denomina- 
tion, when they shall come to require it by reason of age, physical disability 
or dependency. 

Some of the Provisions! of the New Service Plan 

Some of the outstanding features of the New Service Plan are as fol- 
lows: 

1. An age annuity available at sixty-five for every active minister. This 
plan builds to a retirement annuity of approximately 50% of the average 
salary on a basis of thirty-five years of service, i. e., on a basis of an aver- 
age salary of $2,400.00 there will be eventually given an annuity of $1,200.00 
and so on. There will be guaranteed to every active minister participating 
in this plan, a minimum of 50% of his average salary up to $600.00. Three- 
fifths of the retirement annuity will be continued to the widow. 

2. Total and permanent disability prior to the age of sixty-five will 
entitle the participant to an annuity amounting to 40% of his average annual 
salary, during the five years preceding disability. 

3. There will be a death benefit to the widow, after the first year of 
membership, amounting to 75% of the current year's salary of the minister, 
but not to exceed $1,000.00. 

4. Minor children of disabled ministers will participate in this plan to 
receive $100.00 a year each, up to age of eighteen with certain educational 
allowances up to age of twenty-one. 

For details concerning the New Service Annuity Plan, ministers or 
others interested should write the Relief and Annuity Board of the South- 
ern Baptist Convention, 1226 Athletic Club Building, Dallas, Texas, and il- 
luminating literature will be sent promptly. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. Y. POOI.E, For the Committee.

Una White, Woman's Work. 

REPORT ON MISSIONS 
State Missions 

The main part of this report is copied from a tract, entitled "Three 
State Mission Problems," by Secretary Charles E. Maddry. As we come 
toward the centennial of our Convention we realize that there are still many 
State Mission problems still unsolved. Just at the present there are three 
acute problems pressing upon us for solution. 

"1. Enlistment. There are 2,300 white Baptist churches in the Con- 
vention, and according to our records over 600 gave nothing to the Co-opera- 
tive Program last year. There is no justification for the existence of a 
Baptist church that does nothing for the spread of the gospel beyond its 
own borders. These 600 churches must somehow justify their existence and 
their right to live. We believe they can do this by having a worthy part in 
the spread of the gospel at home and abroad. Somehow the Convention must 
fiind a way to enlist these non-co-operating churches. We will never solve 
our financial difficulties until we have enlisted every Baptist church in the 
Convention in the support of the Co-operative Program budget. We must 
begin in earnest from this day forward to preach stewardship and the tithe 
as a minimum for every Baptist in the Convention. * * * We must all stick 
together and perfect the budget and begin with earnestness to preach and 
teach and practice tithing in all our churches. 

"2. Our Fast Growing Industrial Centers. Piedmont and Western North 
Carolina are rapidly being transformed into great manufacturing centers. 
The cotton mill industry of America is rapidly being transferred to a dozen 
counties with Charlotte as a center. There are many new mill villages 
where a million dollars is invested and 100 families have moved in, without 
Baptist work of any kind. The State Mission Board must go into these 
places with aggressive missionary pastors and community workers, and 
somehow secure adequate church buildings and Sunday School equipment. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



13 



The State Mission Board needs to spend a hundred thousand dollars next 
year in rapidly growing industrial centers of North Carolina. These rapidly 
growing centers present to the Baptists of North Carolina the most com- 
pelling challenge that has come to us in 96 years. 

"3. Our Rural Church Problem. According to the account of the Sun- 
day School Board, Nashville, there are more than 2,000 Baptist churches in 
North Carolina in the country. Of course this includes villages and small 
towns of less than 1,000 population. In many sections of the State, especially 
in the mountains, you will find a Baptist church every three miles. Many 
of these churches are small, poorly equipped as to Sunday School arrange- 
ments, and are led by pastors who receive a salary hardly worth the name. 
These pastors are doing the best they can under the difficult and hard cir- 
cumstances under which they have to labor. Many of them have to farm 
or work at something else for a living, and the sad part of it is, many of the 
churches are able to pay them an adequate and worthy salary if only they 
could be induced to do so. With the rapid growth and development of our 
public school system, and the building of good roads many of these churches 
actually face extinction. If we save the Baptist cause in many of these 
country districts there must be consolidation of many of these small con- 
gregations into strong, aggressive and progressive churches." 

In our own Association it will be well if some of our churches will study 
the question of consolidation as outlined by Dr. Maddry, for your committee 
is persuaded that our cause would be greatly strengthened if some of our 
churches in near proximity to each other could find some satisfactory basis 
of uniting. 

In some ways it is to be deeply deplored that our State Mission Board 
has found it necessary to discontinue its department of enlistment, which 
goes into effect with the close of the present calendar year. Yet we feel 
that with the aggressive and effective work now being done by the Sunday 
School and B. Y. P. U. Departments the work of enlistment in principle and 
in reality will be carried on in a great and effective manner. 

We endorse the Board's plan of reducing its indebtedness by one-third in 
each of three years, thus retiring the debt in three years provided the 
Board's receipts are not curtailed during this period. 

This Association urges upon the State Board of Missions the necessity of 
adopting, at no distant date, a definite, wise and aggressive country church 
policy. We feel that there is no religious problem that is so needful of 
wise statesmanship at this time. 

In view of the goodly number of churches that have been beneficiaries 
of the Mission Board for so many years, and yet which seemingly make 
no advance in the work of the kingdom or in community helpfulness, this 
Association urges the Board of Missions to withdraw its aid from these 
churches as rapidly as may be wise without hurting the work, and without 
doing injustice to the noble pastors who are serving these churches. We 
make this suggestion in view of the urgent needs and great opportunities 
presented by our expanding industrial centers, in order that the Board may 
have more money to measure up to the privileges of our denomination in 
these places. 

Your committee suggests that larger use of the Baptist Book Shop be 
made by our people. Any religious book will be procured if an order is sent 
there for it, and Miss Madge Alderman, the manager, will give efficient serv- 
ice and courteous treatment. 

Respectfully submitted,

FORTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 



Home Missions 

No more glorious page in all the annals of domestic missions has ever 
been written than the marvelous achievements of the Home Mission Board 
of the Southern Baptist Convention. The Empire of Texas is a gift of the 
Home Board to Southern Baptists. Some of the strong churches in North 
Carolina and in other States were established, rescued or nourished by the 
Home Board; Baptist men and women, now blessing the world as business 
or professional people, as ministers of the gospel, or as missionaries of the 
Cross, received their preliminary education and their first inspiration to con- 
secrated service in the mountain schools of the Home Board. Lonely immi- 
grants landing on our shores received their first greeting to their new home 
from representatives of the Home Board. Some of these, led to Christ by 
missionaries of this Board, have returned to their native lands as naming 
evangelists of the great Evangel. The Home Board evangelist's have reaped 
golden harvests of souls for the Master's garner; its workers have enlisted 
thousands in the activities of our denomination and the Kingdom; and it 
has lent its hand of aid to Boards of the various states in co-operation with 
them in the work within these commonwealths. 

The opportunities of the Home Board are boundless. Many of the 
world's wisest missionary statesmen regard America as the greatest mission 
field on earth. Certainly it is the most strategic. The needs were perhaps 
never so large and pressing as they are at this time. The marvelous achieve- 
ments and the golden opportunities cause great rejoicing among informed 
Baptists. But that joy is greatly clouded by the diminishing receipts and the 
heavy indebtedness of this Board. The debt on April 30, 1926, was $1,343,- 
275.04. Retrenchments have been made each year for the past four; appro- 
priations have been painfully cut; yet the debt increases each year because 
the receipts decrease by a percentage that grows larger with the passing 
seasons. 

And now, when contributions were at last on the up-grade again, and 
workers all along the line were enheartened at the brighter outlook, the 
South has been dealt a staggering blow by the disastrous decline in the 
price of cotton, and again every department of our Southern Baptist work 
is made to face a new crisis. 

In view of the present situation, relief from which does not appear, your 
committee would venture to suggest to the Home Board yet further re- 
trenchment. There is not one phase of its work that is not seemingly vital 
at some point, and all of it is work greatly in need of the help of the Board. 
Yet it is evident that it is suicidal to continue much longer as we have for 
the past four years. Without knowing at fi ( rst hand much of the work of 
the Board we respectfully suggest to the Board some possible retrenchments 
as follows: 

In the Department of Co-operative Missions the sum of $121,000 plus was 
expended. Of this amount $1,200 was spent in the District of Columbia; 
$10,000 in Kentucky; $4,500 in Mississippi, and $10,000 in Texas. We are 
wondering if the State Boards in those States cannot be induced to take 
over these relatively small amounts without at he same time decreasing 
their contributions to Home Missions. 

We wonder, too, if, in view of the relatively small number of patients 
being cared for in the Southern Baptist Sanatorium in El Paso, of the drain 
on the Board's treasury of nearly $30,000 a year to meet the operating 
deficit, of the bonded indebtedness of $280,000 on that institution with the 
annual interest on these bonds, and of the great distance of the Sanatorium 
from the greater part of the Convention's territory, the Board would not find 
it expedient to find a purchaser for this property, and then obtain the con- 
sent of the Convention for its sale. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



15 



Further, there was an expenditure by the Board during the year 1925-26 
of $33,234.62 in the department of enlistment. This department has done 
great and invaluable work during the years of its existence, but we commend 
to the Board its consideration of our suggestion that the wort of this de- 
partment be turned over to the various States. 

Again, as to Mountain Schools. During the last Convention year the 
Yancey Collegiate Institute was discontinued, the property having been sold 
to the Board of Education of Yancey County. This step was taken because 
of the growth of State high schools and decreased attendance on this insti- 
tution. Similar conditions now obtained in large measure over the entire 
South, and it is likely that others of the Mountain School system of the 
Board are in very much the same position that Yancey Collegiate Institute 
found itself. Some of its schools have very small student bodies, and some 
of them are provided with very meager and insufficient equipment. We com- 
mend to the Board its serious consideration of the discontinuance of these 
small and poorly equipped schools that are located in sections provided with 
good State high schools. 

In making these suggestions this committee is not offering any criti- 
cism of any nature on the Board or any of these departments. We regard 
drastic retrenchment on the part of the Board as vital to its future, and make 
these suggestions in the very best of spirit, disclaiming the possession of 
expert knowledge as to how the Board's affairs should be managed, and we 
do not know that the places of retrenchment suggested are the proper places 
for the work of curtailment. We offer the suggestions out of a deep and 
abiding love for the Board and in great confidence in Secretary B. D. Gray. 

To our churches the committee urges the serious and unstinted support 
of the Co-operative Program of the Southern and North Carolina State Con- 
ventions. Some special campaigns must of necessity be admitted into our 
churches, but gifts made in these campaigns should be beyond the regular 
denominational budget of each church. 

The Lord has blessed a number of our people with rather large means, 
and to those we respectfully suggest the prayerful consideration of making 
large special contributions to the Home Board, and of remembering in their 
wills this Board and its magnificent work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHAS. C. SMITH. 

Foreign Missions 

This report is taken from a report on Foreign Missions sent out recently 
by Dr. J. F. Love. * 

The Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention has 
closed the eighty-first year of its great service as a clearing house of South- 
ern Baptists for the dissemination of the Gospel in the most destitute parts 
of the earth. These eighty-one years have been filled with perplexing prob- 
lems, hard work, and often with discouragments. But there has been an 
almost unbroken progress in evangelistic achievements and expansion of the 
kingdom of Christ. THE LAST YEAR WAS THE BEST IN ALL THE 
YEARS OF THE BOARD'S HISTORY AND WORK. 

1. Things Accomplished Last Year. 

Almost as many persons were baptized on our mission fields last year 
as we have members in this association — 13,269 were baptized, a gain of 
1,135, or a gain of about 10%. The total membership is now 140,488. This 
membership is organized into 1,215 churches, 557 of which are self-support- 
ing. These churches last year contributed $444,258, or nearly $4.00 per 
member. 



16 



FORTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 



We have on these fields 1,818 Sunday Schools and 568 women's societies. 
There are also 574 young people's societies. Of schools of all grades we 
had 920 with a total student body of 36,893 before the Board's finances made 
it necessary to discontinue many of these schools. It is found that more 
than 50% of the baptisms reported for the year was among these students 
in our Christian schools on the foreign fields. 

2. A Second Fact to Be Remembered Is the Financial Condition of the 
Board. 

The Board started the year 1925-26 with a heavy debt and loud calls 
from its missionaries for re-enforcement and relief. During the year the 
Board received from the Co-operative Program $1,071,834.16; in designated 
gifts $240,613.05; and in total gifts to the Christmas Love offering $811,344.11. 
The debt was substantially reduced, but there was left an indebtedness of 
$727,000. 

The Board has for more than three years denied the missionaries all 
equipment, such as residences, church buildings, school and hospital build- 
ings, etc., and has now for some time discontinued the appointment of mis- 
sionaries, although there has been sad depletion of the missionary staff by 
death and resignations. The distress and disaster of these denials of mis- 
sionary needs may, to some degree, be estimated by the following extracts 
from missionary letters: 

"The hearts of the missionaries have been torn and worn these past 
months, for the news of discouragement that has been coming from the 
Board has been so hard to stand. In fact the Board is going to lose many 
men and women because we cannot stand the strain forever and it seems 
that Southern Baptists have given us the whole thing to bear. We have 
been forced to break contracts and let preachers go who were employed in 
good faith, but we personally could not stand the strain. Still it is ours, as 
the workers blame us. Some are going to be forced to leave their fields be,- 
cause of it. The Board truly did not know what they were forcing us to do." 

"We are at present spending our whole time in Canton. The reduced 
appropriation for our traveling expenses, this year, making this necessary. We 
have already used more for traveling expenses — far more — than the Board 
grants us to date. For the same reason, we have had to call off our Preach- 
ers' Conference and our Bible Women's Conference, and must depend, from 
now on, on haphazard meetings with our workers who live out of town. 

"We know perfectly well that when the Board cut out the appropria- 
tions for every one of the 80 preachers, teachers, Bible women and colpor- 
ters on the payroll of us two, you did not realize that 'Evangelistic Work in 
the Canton Field' and 'Day Schools in the Canton Field' meant not only 
Canton city, where we two have four chapels and schools, but it meant 
that vast territory assigned to us two — so vast that we formerly did well 
when we made the rounds once a year, holding meetings of a few days in 
each place." 

"It was in our absence, on one of our missionary journeys, that the news 
came of this complete cutting of the ground from under us two. 

"We are not complaining. You know better than we what the resources 
of the Board are; and all we do is to state the case; and we feel sure that 
you will do the best you can for the work we love better than we love our 
lives." 

A small volume of extracts similar to the above could be made from 
missionary letters to the Board, but the above are sufficient for any who will 
have their hearts touched.

The world which the Foreign Mission Board is facing is a world in 
desperate need, but a world ready for Christ, its only hope. Will the Bap- 
tists of this Association suffer their beloved missionaries and their Foreign 
Mission Board to appeal in vain to them? Will they ignore the cries of a 
lost and ruined world for which Christ died and for which we have a sure 
and only remedy? The world needs the Gospel, hundreds of young people 
are ready to carry it, and our people have the money to send them, if they 
will only give it.

Report of Woman's Work 

Among many things to encourage and cheer the women of the West 
Chowan Association in their missionary work throughout the year have 
been the following: 

When the Elizabeth City Division met in Windsor on June 16, our Union 
was very glad to have present Rev. J. R. Saunders from Canton, China, one 
of our own missionaries, who brought to the women a soul-thrilling mes- 
sage concerning the needs of China. Mrs. Edna Harriss, of Raleigh, the 
Mission Study Leader of North Carolina was present also and her address 
on Mission Study revealed that Mission Study is more than a requirement 
of the Standard of Excellence and therefore some schools of missions have 
been conducted for the entire membership of the churches. 

The students of Chowan College were fortunate in having Miss Dorothy 
Kellam, of Raleigh (Miss Kellam is the State Young People's Leader), Miss 
Ttessie Tayloe, of Ahoskie, and Mrs. W. R. Burrell, Murfreesboro, the 
Y. W. A. Leader of the West Chowan Association, to conduct Mission Study 
Classes for them the last of September. 

Mr. Gordon Poteat, from Kaifung, China, a teacher in one of our schools 
there, addressed the women in their annual meeting, which was held July 
28, in Rich Square. His message presented the needs of developing the 
social and school life in China. 

A happy development in the personal service has been accomplished as . 
the women are giving scholarships to three deserving girls who are now 
students of Chowan College. 

One of the delightful features of the W. M. U. work is the fund which 
is for the support of a missionary. 

During the summer special prayer bands and study classes were or- 
ganized to help in "Soul- Winning" during the revival meetings in the Asso- 
ciation. 

Our gifts have not been so large as we wish so tithing is being stressed 
now in the hope that more will decide to render unto Him His tenth besides 
making large gifts. 

Altho the work in our Association has not gone forward by leaps and 
bounds, we thank God for his many blessings and rejoice that we have had 
a part in His work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

UNA WHITE.

REPORT ON EDUCATION 

1926 

Long ago Paul, writing to Timothy, set the ideal for Christian Educa- 
tion in these words, "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but 'of 
power, and of love and of a sound mind." As pointed out by Dean Brown, 
of Yale, Paul's ideal means that the young Christian needs that equipment 
which may be called "Stamina, Sympathy and Scholarship." For well 
rounded personality, these factors must be developed. Furthermore, they 
can and ought to be developed; and any system of education which does 
not develop these is defective. For Stamina, that ability which enables one 
to "stand-up-to," whether physical, intellectual or spiritual, can and ought 
to be developed; likewise, Sympathy, which means love for God and one's 
fellows, and likewise, a sound mind, which the great Apostle regarded as 
one of the gifts of the good God, can and ought to be developed. 

North Carolina Baptists believe that Christian Education can and does 
develop these factors and to this end are pursuing a broad and systematic 
education program. The ideals are the same as in other years, but methods 
and appeal change for the reason that our problems change. At one time 
Baptists owned some fourteen high schools in North Carolina. Now, how- 
ever, the Convention has only one, viz, Boiling Springs High School, while 
the Home Board has only four, viz, Sylvia, Haywood, Fruitland and Moun- 
tain View. At one time there were some three or four times as many stu- 
dents in our High Schools as there were in college. For the school year 
1925-1926, however, there were nearly twice as many in our colleges as in 
our high schools. The ideal and need for Christian Education has not 
changed but the type or grade of student to whom we must appeal has 
changed and now Baptists are concentrating on junior college and college 
seeking, if possible, to train future leaders and through them reach as 
many poeple as possible. 

The following facts for the session of 1925-1926 indicate a steady growth 
There were enrolled 1,081 high school students in Mars Hill, Wingate, Boil- 
ing Springs and Buie's Creek, while 1,787 students were enrolled in college, 
distributed as follows: Wake Forest, 731; Meredith, 467; Chowan, 149; Mars 
Hill, 271; Wingate, 169. In addition Wake Forest enrolled 790 in summer 
school, reaching in this way some 400 teachers in our public schools, 240 of 
whom were registered for Bible. In May and June, 1926, our high schools 
graduated 174, our colleges graduated 196, while 96 finished the two-year 



20 



FORTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 



junior college course. In our high schools and colleges we had 238 pre- 
paring for the ministry and 32 for Foreign Mission service. During the 
year buildings and equipment were added and completed valued at $1,150,- 
155.00, thus bringing the value of all schools under the control of the Con- 
vention to $3,151,518.00. Their endowment is valued at $3,237,052.00. From 
this figure, in order to get the net worth, should be substracted a total 
indebtedness of 1,165,000.00. 

These facts are encouraging and yet we must not forget that "To them 
that hath shall be given." God has wonderfully prospered North Carolina 
Baptists and has given larger responsibilities and opportunities. Educa- 
tionally, the task ahead of us is to see to it that our institutions provide the 
best to the end that leaders shall be equipped with "Stamina, Sympathy and 
Scholarship." To accomplish this end, money in greater abundance must be 
given by our people, for our institutions must have buildings, annual sup- 
port and endowment. At present 1,047 of those enrolled in our institu- 
tions do not live in buildings owned by the institutions and in the matter 
of annual income the State is providing by taxation for the University alone 
about six times as much as all our intsitutions receive from endowment. 
We have lost nine high schools within the past few years because the State's 
rapidly expanding high school program and for the reason that no institution, 
unless it caters to the wealthy, can survive without funds over and beyond 
what the students pay. It is quite clear that others of our schools will go 
the way of our high schools, unless more funds can be secured through thie 
Co-operative Program or by special campaigns outside of it. A full support 
of the Co-operative Program would insure a steady income for our schools 
such as the State has from taxation. It is no longer a question of students, 
for the best who graduate from our high schools are seeking to enter our 
Baptist schools. It is solely a question of proper financial support from those 
already in or seeking to enter, so that they may develop that power and 
love and a sound mind of which Paul speaKS. 

It should be understood that the entire incomes of the State Education 
Board has hitherto been insufficient to meet the demands of our institution, 
namely, Meredith College. This obligation was placed upon the resources of 
the Board by action of the Convention meeting at Gastonia. The Board has 
no recourse in the matter, therefore it is imperative that the resources 
of the Board be enlarged at once if the Board is to function in the support of 
other schools. 

Sunday Schools 

Mr. E. L. Middleton, our General Sunday School Secretary for North 
Carolina, reports that there are really over 2,250 Sunday Schools in the 
State, including Mission schools, and a membership of 312,840, which is a 
gain of 26,047 during the year. For every 100 church members we have 86.1 
people in Sunday School. This is the best average in the South unless some 
State has made phenominal gains this year. Last year we gained 26,047 pu- 
pils. This gain was nearly three times the pre-war period and over twice 
the preceding three years. This growth is very encouraging and the out- 
look for future growth is perhaps brighter. 

While the above figures are encouraging, there are some facts which re- 
veal great problems. Out of 2,300 Baptist churches there are 1,400 one room 
church buildings. This makes it practically impossible to have an efficient 
Sunday School. These churches must provide better buildings and equip- 
ment or lose their opportunity. We cannot expect our boys and girls who 
attend public school for five days in a week in a modern building, well 
equipped and taught by thoroughly trained teachers, to appreciate nor to 
interest themselves in such Sunday Schools as are usually held in one 
room buildings with poor equipment and poor teaching. There are 125 
churches with no Sunday Schools and over 300 that close a part of the year. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



21 



Our Sunday Schools have a constituency of 500,000 people which at present 
belong to no Sunday School. We have 200,000 Baptist in the State un- 
enlisted, untrained, who have not given a cent to any denominational cause 
in five years. These problems present a tremendous task for North Caro- 
lina Baptists. Secretary Middleton and his associates are working at these 
problems by helping plan better buildings and equipment, by aiding in en- 
listment, proper organization and training teachers and officers. 

The West Chowan Association has a splendid record as to church mem- 
bership, contributions and churches, but in Sunday School enrollment we 
hang our heads in shame. Out of 64 Associations the West Chowan ranks 
fifty-first in Sunday School attendance in proportion to church membership. 
For every 100 church members we have only 70 in the Sunday School and 
of course that includes many children who are not church members. Judg- 
ing by these figures we may safely say that one half of the 15,000 Baptists 
in this Association do not attend Sunday School. May we arouse our 
churches, enlist our people and erase this blot from our Associational record. 

The following objectives for North Carolina the coming year: 

1. Enlargement — Gain 25,000 new members from a constituency of 500,- 
000 now in no Sunday School. 

2. Organize — Grade and departmentize every Sunday School. 

3. Build and equip new houses, remodel old ones and make them at- 
tractive. 

4. Earn 10,000 Sunday School Normal awards for the year. 

5. Enlist and Utilize the 200,000 church members who are unenlisted 
and untrained. 

6. Evangelism — Our supreme task is soul winning. With 650,000 lost 
men and women and 900,000 children in North Carolina, the call to evangel- 
ism is our greatest challenge. May we have at least 23,000 baptisms this 
year. 

B. Y. P. U. 

The growth of the B. Y. P. U. work in North Carolina has been wonder- 
ful. The present organization was formed in 1909 and the first convention 
was held at Durham in 1910 and 10 Unions were represented. At the last 
convention held at Meredith College in June, 1926, more than 1,600 repre- 
sentatives were present. There are 1,800 Unions in 1,150 churches and in 
all our schools and colleges. At least 1,000 of our churches have no 
B. Y. P. U. and are without the valuable training services furnished by them. 

In the training of our young people lies the hope of the future of our 
churches. What West Point is for the training of our soldiers the B. Y. P. U. 
it for the training of our young people in our churches The B. Y. P. U. 
constitution declares its object to be "The increased spirituality of young 
Christians, their training in essential church activities, their edification in 
Scriptural knowledge, their instruction in Baptist dostrine and history and 
their enlistment in all forms of missionary endeavor through existing denom- 
inaitonal organizations." 

Our Sunday School Board at Nashville recognizes the value of this 
work and is giving it equal advantages and encouragement both in literature 
and working force as is given the Sunday School. In North Carolina the 
Baptist State Convention fosters the work. We have two full time workers 
for the State — Mr. Perry Morgan and Miss Winnie Rickett. Much of our 
recent progress has been due to their untiring efforts.

FORTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 



In the West Chowan Association we have 65 Unions which according to 
the minutes of the last Association shows a gain of ten Unions. These 
Unions, according to the same minutes are in 40 churches leaving 18 with 
no Unions. Our Association is making a splendid record and we hope not 
only to maintain it but to improve it. We heartily recommend that every 
Church where at all possible undertake the maintenance of at least one 
Union. We also urge that the parents co-operate with the pastor and church 
in their efforts to train and enlist the young people.

Southern Baptist Institutions 

The Seventh Annual report of the Educational Board of the Southern 
Baptist Convention calls attention to the following special items: 

1. Southern Baptists are this year rounding out one hundred years of 
activity in organized work for Christian Education. Furman University of 
South Carolina and Mississippi College are celebrating their Centennial 
year. Two new junior colleges are being built this year, one in Louisiana 
and the other in Florida. 

2. After one hundred years of building on this foundation, laid through 
the faith and labors of our Baptist fathers, we have 117 schools that are 
training 40,000 students. In addition to these there are about 50,000 of our 
young men and women in State colleges and universities. 

3. Southern Baptists have three theological seminaries. The Southern 
Baptist Theological Seminary, the largest school for preachers in the world 
has moved to its new home on a 30-acre tract of land near the city of 
Louisville, Ky. When completed will cost about $2,000,000. 

The Southwestern Theological Seminary is located at Fort Worth, 
Texas, and is said to be the second largest theological seminary in the 
world. 

The Baptist Bible Institute is located at New Orleans, La. This insti- 
tution is doing, through her students, an amazing amount of evangelism in 
that large wicked Roman Catholic city. 

4. During the past seven years, the number of standard Baptist Col- 
leges in the South has increased from four to sixteen. 

5. Our Southern Educational Board fosters an Indian school and 
orphanage at Okmulgee, Okla., where 75 boys and girls are studying. All 
who are of proper age professed faith in Christ during the last session. 

6. In addition to those institutions named above our Southern Educa- 
tional Board fosters the following institutions and bureaus: 

The Southern Baptist Assembly at Ridgecrest, N. C, with property 
valued at more than $500,000. Here from June to September Southern 
Baptists gather to study missions, evangelism and all kinds of training and 
kingdom work as well as for wholesome recreation. 

Friends of Lake County, Fla., have given to our Educational Board 190 
acres of land and enough money to erect the necessary buildings for a 
winter resort to correspond with Ridgecrest, N. C, summer resort. 

The Board conducts what they call the "Life Calling Conference," in 
all our Baptist schools and among Baptists in State schools. 

Our Educational Board has a "Teacher Bureau Department," that puts 
Baptist teachers in touch with positions in Baptist schools.

On motion to adopt, W. B. Edwards, President of Chowan 
College spoke on the work of this institution. He was fol- 
lowed by J. H. Matthews, President of the Board of Trustees. 
The time was extended for him to discuss this subject and O. 
Creech and D. P. Harris also spoke. Report adopted. 

The following resolution presented by J. H. Matthews was, 
on motion, adopted by a rising vote. 

WHEREAS, Mr. B. N. Duke has made the generous offer to donate 
twenty-five thousand dollars to the Permanent Endowment Fund of Chowan 
College, on condition that the trustees and friends of the college, shall, by 
May first, 1927, raise the further sum of fifty thousand dollars for said en- 
dowment; and, 

WHEREAS, In its great work of Christian education and training, 
Chowan College has reached the place in its development and equipment 
when an adequate permanent endowment is necessary to continue and 
enlarge its usefulness, and without which the work of the college will be 
crippled and retarded; and, 

WHEREAS, The Board of Trustees of Chowan College have wisely ac- 
cepted the donation of Mr. Duke upon the imposed condition: Be it therefore 

RESOLVED: That the West Chowan Association approves the ac- 
ceptance of the donation on the condition imposed, and heartily endorses 
the purpose and plans of the trustees to raise the additional endowment of 
fifty thousand dollars to meet said condition; and that our people within the 
bounds of this Association, and the friends of the college throughout the 
State, are urged to make generous contributions to this fund. 

RESOLVED FURTHER: That the West Chowan Association extend 
its sincere thanks and appreciation to Mr. B. N. Duke for his generous offer 
to donate twenty-five thousand dollars to the Permanent Endowment Fund 
of Chowan College, on condition that the friends of the college shall raise 
the further sum of fifty thousand dollars for said endowment by May 
first, 1927.

The Historian's report was read and accepted: 



THE HISTORIAN'S REPORT 

Our territory is strictly rural. Not a town in our Association would be 
classed by the Feneral Government as a city. We have no manufacturing 
except small lumber plants, a few peanut cleaners and one cottonseed mill. 
Hence our people are almost entirely dependent upon our farming industry 
for sustenance. Therefore when prices are low all our people feel the 
effect, many to the point of severe economy. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 25 

The year 1926 has been an unusual year. The winter of 1925-1926 was 
unusually cold and the summer has been unusually hot and dry. Yet, the 
Lord, in his goodness, has given us a fair crop. But the price of cotton is 
far below the cost of production. We are hoping that the price of peanuts 
will be good, tho the prediction is otherwise. Our people are largely de- 
pendent upon these two crops for support. Tobacco is selling well, but it is 
raised only in spots and our people as a whole are not financially benefitted 
as a consequence. The future looks dark to many of our people. When will 
our farmers learn the wisdom of making their home supplies, as far as 
possible? 

From what we can learn our churches have fallen behind on benevolence 
for the year 1926. Yet, our people find money for automobiles and gaso- 
line to use for pleasure as much as usual. Fairs, circuses and other places 
of amusements such as movies and water resorts are largely patronized. 
Cutting down our offerings, for the Kingdom of God and keeping our 
pleasure expenses at high water mark speaks of the low spiritual condition 
of our churches. Has not the time come for us to cry aloud unto God for a 
great spiritual awakening? 

Our pastors and churches seem to be restless and discontented. Pas- 
torates are short. In our Association there is only one pastor who has been 
on his present field as long as four years. There seems to be a craze for 
something new. Our whole system, body, mind and soul, are longing for 
something other than what they have. 

Yet, we have some things that should buoy us up. Our churches have 
had good revivals and a few have had large additions. Some of our 
churches have launched building projects to supply the needs of their Bible 
Schools. 

Colerain has completed her eduactional plant which she began more 
than a year ago. The same is true of Christian Harbor Church — said 
church, we are now enjoying her wholehearted hospitality. Roberts Chapel 
hopes to enter her new brick building by Christmas. Brantley's Grove is 
now occupying her new brick building. Aulander, which has been in need of 
a suitable building for many years, is erecting a forty or fifty thousand 
dollar building, which they hope to enter by the early spring. Chowan Col- 
lege has opened with the largest enrollment in her history. 

During the past year we have lost from our Association by removal 
the following pastors, who did a noble work in our Association: H. G. 
Bryant to Kannapolis; T. E. Walters, to Rocky Mount, and E. W. Mason 
to Robersonville. 

The hand of death has removed from our midst a large number of our 
older members. Among the number was Brother Thomas Gillam, of 
Windsor, who for many years was a deacon and leading member of Cashie 
Church. He was Moderator of our Association for six years. 



HISTORY OF CHRISTIAN HARBOR CHURCH 

The following facts were furnished your historian by J. H. Evans, a 
member of Christian Harbor Church. 

Christian Harbor Church was organized in 1881. The following ministers 
aided in her organization: B. F. Barber, W. C. Overton and T. G. Wood. 
Twenty members went into the organization. These members came from 
Colerain, Harrellsville and Bethlehem Churches. She has had thirteen 
pastors as follows: T. G. Wood, W. C. Overton, Drew Parish, J. R. Mathews, 
S. F. Bristoe, E. S. Pierce, M. L, Greene, M. P. Davis, Dr. J. A. Speight, 
Frank Clark, R. B. Lineberry, T. E. Walters and the present pastor, R. B. 
Lineberry, who is serving his second pastorate. 



20 



FORTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 



The first building was burned in 1902. The second was erected the same 
year. Both of them were one-room buildings. For many years the church 
felt the need of class rooms for their Bible School, but not until 1924 did she 
feel equal to the task of erecting them. The building is well suited to the 
work of the school as we see with our own eyes. 

This church was located in a community known in 1881 as an ignorant 
and backward community, with a few noble exceptions, who saw the need 
of a church. Comparatively few were professed Christians and a large num- 
ber were known as drinkers if not drunkards. Brother Evans says, "This 
church has never had a deacon, Sunday School Superintendent or teacher 
who had as much as a high school education." Yet. this church has trans- 
formed the entire community. Her people are as law-abiding as can be 
found anywhere. She gives as much or more in accordance to hfer numbers 
and wealth as any church in our Association. 

Some seventeen or eighteen years ago she voted a tax and largely by 
volunteer contributions erected a two-teacher school building to educate her 
children. A few years ago she aided in voting a tax sufficient to establish a 
township high school, located in Harrellsville, where her children could se- 
cure a high school education. Christian Harbor church is the only white 
religious institution in this entire section, hence deserves the credit of the 
wonderful transformation of this section. 

Nineteen years ago Christian Harbor Church entertained this Associa- 
tion and entertained it well, though she divided on the method of enter- 
tainment. Some wanted to dispence with the elaborate method of using 
on the table all things that are used in the dining room in the same. Others 
wanted to follow the prevailing custom. As a consequence there were two 
tables, one serving the old elaborate way and the other picnic style. I be- 
lieve this was the wedge that started the move that will eventually do away 
with the elaborate way of serving. 

The Committee on Finances reported $172.20 collected for 
Minutes. 

The Treasurer's report was read and adopted:

On motion J. C. Mizelle was allowed to read a report on 
Temperance and Law Enforcement which was adopted as fol- 
lows : 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE AND LAW ENFORCEMENT 

Prohibition is not a political issue; it is absolutely a moral issue and a 
church fight for the right. And its worst enemies are bound to admit that 
it has made progress, but its present situation challenges the friends of 
this righteous cause. The mass attack of the wets favoring modification 
during the long-drawn-out hearings on the wet bills furnished the wet 
press with an abundance of propaganda to their liking. But the drys an- 
swered every wet argument with the result that the sub-committee of the 



28 



FORTY-FOURTH ANNUAL SESSION 



Judiciary Committee hearing the evidence, reported against all the wet 
bills and urged the adoption of a bill to strengthen the prohibition law. 
Several of the dry measures have been combined in one bill which is now 
at the head of the legislative calendar waiting for action when the Senate 
convenes in December, 1926. 

In view of the fact that our law abiding citizens here in North Carolina 
want bettetr law enforcement and the West Chowan Baptist Associa- 
tion, representing 58 churches and nearly fifteen thousand members want 
law enforcement; Therefore, Be It 

RESOLVED: That the authentic delegation of this Association are 
heartily in favor of the retention of the eighteenth amendment and the 
Volstead Act, with pending legislation in Congress as machinery to make 
the prohibition law more effective in all the States of the Union. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. C. MIZELLE. 

Upon motion by D. P. Harris a rising vote of thanks was 
extended to Christian Harbor Church and community for their

SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION 

The West Chowan Baptist Sunday School Convention held 
its thirty-seventh annual session with Severn Baptist Church, 
May 28th, 1926. Devotional service was led by Bro. J. P. 
Essex. The Convention extended a rising vote of sympathy to 
Bro. A. W. H. Jones in the recent loss of his mother. 

Thirty-two churches answered the roll call and the Conven- 
tion organized by electing the following officers : A. C. Gay, 
President; J. T. Bolton, Vice-President; W. A. Thomas, Sec- 
retary-Treasurer. 

"The Sunday School — a Strategic Field for the Pastor," 
was discussed by Bro. J. L. Price.

MINUTES 

of the 

B. Y. P. U. CONVENTION 

The sixth annual B. Y. P. U. Convention of the West 
Chowan Association met at Rich Square Baptist Church July 
6-7, 1926. This was one of the outstanding meetings held in 
our organized plan of B. Y. P. U. work. Three State workers 
present: E. N. Gardner, State President; Perry Morgan, 
State Secretary, and Miss Winnie Rickett, Junior and Interme- 
diate Leader. Each of these leaders gave inspiring messages 
during the two days the Convention was in session; many local 
young people and pastors making the program complete. 

Among important business transacted, was a change in the 
plan for our annual Convention. Next year it will be held in 
combination with an Institute, giving opportunity for study 
courses and addresses by State workers as well as local mem- 
bers. Details will be worked out by a committee. Aulander 
will entertain this meeting. 

Because of a deficit in the Treasury, each Union was as- 
sessed a certain amount to make up the deficiency: $1.00 for 
each Senior Union, $.50 for each Intermediate and $.25 for 
each Junior Union. After the bill of $4.50 was paid the other 
was to go on current expenses. A total of 60 Unions was re- 
ported (some have been organized since). During one quar- 
ter of last year more Unions were standard than at any other 
one quarter since we have done organized work. 

Thirty-six per cent of the Unions took a study course last 
year. 

The following officers were elected: 
PRESIDENT— D. D. Lewis. 
VICE-PRESIDENTS— 

Miss Foy Peele, Bertie County. 

Miss Alta Chitty, Hertford County. 

Mrs. W. A. Lambertson, Northampton County. 
SECRETARY— Miss Helen Winborne. 
PIANIST— Miss Bettie Walter Jenkins.

WOMAN'S ASSOCIATIONAL MEETING 

The Thirty-Second Annual Session of the Woman's Mis- 
sionary Union of West Chowan Association was held at Rich 
Square, N. C., on Wednesday, July 28, 1926. This organiza- 
tion is held at a different time and place from the regular As- 
sociation and as they print their minutes separately, this is just 
to make mention of it. They raised nearly $15,000 for church 
work the past Associational year. They pay the salary of 
Miss Pearl Johnson, a Missionary in China, and give three 
scholarships to young ladies at Chowan College. Their next 
session will be held at Colerain on Wednesday after the fourth 
Sunday in July, 1927. 



ORGANIZED CLASS CONVENTION 

An organized class convention was held at Ashley's Grove 
Church on the fifth Sunday in May, 1926. This Convention is 
to foster and encourage organized classes in Sunday Schools. 
Their meetings are held at separate time and place from the 
regular Association. Their next meeting will be at Bethany 
Church the fifth Sunday in May, 1927. 

This Association has no organization of Laymen and so no 
Convention of this kind was held.

Article 1. This body shall be known as the North Carolina West Chowan 
Baptist Association. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches con- 
nected with this body, and all ordained ministers who are members or pastors 
of said churches, together with the officers of this Association, and chairmen 
of all standing committees. Each church of one hundred members and under 
shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each additional one hundred 
members, an additional messenger, provided, that no church shall have more 
than four messengers. 

OBJECTS'. 

Art. 3. The objects sha 1 ! be to devise and recommend measures for increas- 
ing the harmony, the intelligence and the spiritual power of the churches, 
and for developing and directing their energies, their resources and their 
gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom in the earth. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES. 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sover. 
eignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative 
council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend 
measures of usefulness for their adoption, but can not bind them in any way. 
Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the body, 
it may justly claim for itself, for its objects and for its recommendation the 
very highest consideration and regard. 

Art. 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any church that be- 
comes heterodox in doctrine, oi disorderly in practice, or that fails to repre- 
sent itself, either by messenger or letter, more than two successive sessions, 
without sufficient reasons, or that treats with contempt its objects and re- 
quirements, or upon application of a church for dismission. 

RIGHTS 1 OF CHURCHES. 

Article 6. Each individual church shall hold and exercise all the functions 
of an independent church of Jesus Christ. As constituent members of this 
Association, the churches shall have right to advise, when desired, in case 
of difficulty, and suggest plans of usefulness to be adopted. It shall be the 
undisputed privilege of any church to withdraw its membership from this 
Association whenever it shall so elect. 

DUTIES OP CHURCHES.

ness after the enrollment of messengers. As soon as the new officers shall 
have taken their seats, Ihe body shall be declared organized and prepared 
for business.

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE. 

ORPHANAGE. 

The cry of the orphan has not gone unheeded. The Thomasville Orphanage 
is the response of North Carolina Baptists to the cry. It is such a response 
as is a joy and gratulation to every loyal heaited Baptist. Such an institu- 
tion has not sprung Minerva-like, full panoplied, into existence, but is a 
growth of years. It was forty-two years ago (in 1885) that the first child 
was admitted to the Orphanage. And today the number at Thomasville is 
596. In 1914 Kennedy Home, the eastern branch of the Orphanage was open- 
ed, near Kinston. 118 are being cared for in this home. For six years Moth- 
ers Aid work has been in operation. There are 27 mothers aided and 392 
children cared for in this way. This makes a grand total of 988 children 
under the care of the Baptists of this State. The sad part is that from 50 
to 100 applicants have to be denied admission each month of the year. 

These children have not been gathered together to be neglected. Good 
wholesome food is provided, and their intellectual and spiritual needs are 
provided for. The children attend school 48 weeks in the year and Rev. E. 
N. Gardner is located there as pastor and he also teaches Bible in the school. 

There is need for the once a month collections in the Sunday-schools to be 
pressed and the Thanksgiving offering to be made an unusually good one 
otherwise embarrassing indebtedness will be upon the institution. 

We urge that a club of Charity and Children be formed in every school. 
It can be had at 60 cents per copy in clubs of ten or more and sent fo one 
address. 

We also recommend the appointment of an Orphanage representative by 
the Association. This may be either a man or woman and the duty will be 
to keep the management at Thomasville in touch with the Sunday-schools 
in the Association. 

SABBATH OBSERVANCE, 

No nation may long preserve its integrity, that permits the desecration of 
the Sabbath day. And in view of the widespread tendency to neglect the day 
we call upon our people to remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. It is set 
apart for rest and service of God, and not joy riding, nor pleasure seeking. 
It is a holy day, not a holiday. It is high tim e that Christians should pro- 
test against the wide spread and growing tendency to defame and profane 
our. Christian Sabbath. 

LAW OBSERVANCE AND THE 18TH AMENDMENT. 

Outlaws are lightly disregarded. Few seem to takeTthem seriously. A new 
law enacted is too frequently just another to be disregarded. Tod frequently 
those charged with the duty of enforcing law join hands with the violators. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION. 



11 



Particularly do we have in mind the enforcement of our National Prohibition 
law. We desire to go on record as believing in prohibition, and the Volstead 
Act. We believe that our National Government should administer this law 
with a strong hand, and should make provisions therefor. We believe in the 
strict enforcement of the prohibition law. 

AGED MINISTERS' AND ANNUITY BOARD. 

It has come to pass in our modern civilization that all corporations of any 
note set aside a fund to take care of their employees who have given their 
strength and life in faithful service, that they may not come to want in their 
declining years. 

We are one of the greatest bodies in the world, then why should not South- 
ern Baptists set aside a fund to take care of our aged ministers and their 
wives, who have given their strength and their lives to the greatest cause on 
earth today? 

We are in full sympathy with the Relief and Annuity Board. Let's con- 
tinue to support the Board with our prayers and co-operation. In our unified 
program the Board is supported by a small per cent of our offerings. If we 
increase our offerings, then we increase this object of our Convention. 

In conclusion we wish to express our sorrow and loss in the death of the 
faithful and greatly beloved secretary, Dr. William Lunsford, and endorse 
the movement that is now on foot to raise a million dollars endowment fund 
as a memorial to Dr. Lunsford. 

ON HOSPITAL. 

Only time and space limit the wonderful story of healing ana mercy the 
Baptist Hospital has to tell. 

The hospital this year has cared for about 2000 patients, around 600 of 
these have been charity patients. These ccme from all over the State. Many 
of them are fathers and mothers, in fact the larger part are. They have fam- 
ilies depending upon them, and were it not that the Hospital opens its doors 
to them and lets them in, hundreds of them would die leaving their children 
and families to the Orphanage and to the world. 

We spend about $30,000.00 per year to care for them. This year the de- 
nomination gave us $15,000.00 on Mother's day to pay the charity bill of 
$30,000.00. That is all the money we get from the denomination to do charity 
with. The Duke Memorial Fund will give us about $7,500.00. Then the ether 
$7,500.00 will have to come out of the cash receipts from pay-patients that 
we ought to have to pay bills with. In order to do this we have to practice 
the most rigid economy and go without things we need so .much. From this 
can be seen that the Hospital is not asking for any money for its mainte- 
nance. It pays its own running expenses and contributes around $7,000.00 
to help on charity work. So the money we give on Mother's day is all for 
charity. It is the measure of Baptist People's love and care for their sick 
brothers and sisters, who are not able to take care of themselves. The larger 
the amount we raise on Mother's Day the more charity the Hospital can do, 
and the smaller the amount the fewer people can be helped. 

We do not think any Baptist anywhere who will stop to think about it, 
will refuse to give a small amount, just onc e a year, to save life, restore 
health, and keep children from becoming orphans. 

The amount the hospital gets from- the Budget amounts to around $14,000.00. 
This pays the interest on the . bonded indebtedness and retires the bonds 
which come due each year. 

If our people will just remember the Hospital on Mother's Day and take 
that one offering, the Hospital can continue to do a wonderful work for the 
poor suffering Baptists and nobody will ever feel the effects of the anoeal. 

Of course the Hospital can go on doing business if they do not take an 



12 



FORTY-FIFTH ANNUAL SESSION 



offering, but the charity work would stop, because the Duke Endowment 
Fund would stop its contributions, they give in proportion as the denomina- 
tion gives. 

We are building a nurses home. A three story brick and cement building 
which will care for 45 girls and provide the school facilities for the training 
department of our Hospital. 

It will be a great blessing to our girls and a real contribution to the assets 
of our denomination. The ladies gave us $20,000.00. We have a sinking 
fund of about $7,000.00. We will owe around $15,000.00 when this building 
is finished, but we will have a sinking fund to take care of this debt so that 
the denomination will not be called upon to give a cent on this edifice. We 
will hand it over to the Baptists, that is if the churches continue to send us 
the Mother's Day offering for charity, so that we can keep our institution 
full. 

The Hospital has a Medical and surgical staff of 25 doctors, and they are 
as fine as the country can produce. Last year the death rate at the Hospital 
was 15 to the thousand, this average is lower than that of our cities m tne 
state for well people. 

We your committee presenting this report recommend that our churches 
within the bounds of our Association be asked to continue in taking an offer- 
ing on Mother's Day and designate sam e to the charity work in our Baptist 
Hospital in Winston-Salem, N. C. Respectfully submitted,

REPORT ON MISSIONS. 

FOREIGN MISSIONS'. 

When a retrospective view of our Foreign Mission work is taken we 
praise God for what has been accomplished. The great advance along all 
lines of Missionary endeavor in recent years fills us with joy and gratitude, 
especially are all Christians filled and thrilled with delight because so manv 
are heeding Him, who upon the authority of Heaven, commanded his follow- 
ers to proclaim the glad tidings of salvation to a world lost in sin. 

However we hang our heads with sorrow and shame that so many of those 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION. 



13 



consecrated men and women go not to the foreign fields because Christians 
here in the homeland make their offering to the foreign work so small. 

During the last Convention year the Foreign Mission Board received from 
the co-operative program $980,214 which was less than the previous year by 
more than $91,000. The debt has been reduced to $748,000, but this reduc. 
tion has been made at the expense of the work and by declining for two 
years to appoint men and women who have been called of God to the foreign 
field. 

The Board is in great need at this time. Besides being pressed by debt, 
after the most rigid economy and retrenchment, there are workers who need 
rest and many more who need better equipment. There is also a great heed 
for re-enforcements and the Board has no money with which to send the 
consecrated men and women who are anxious to go. 

We would recommend, that the pastors call the people to the most earnest 
prayer on behalf of the work. They use every proper means to inform the 
people by sermons, addresses and the distribution of literature bearing on 
this great subject. 

The remainder of the year lies before us with opportunities and privileges. 
These opportunities to bring with them corresponding responsibility. We 
need workers, more workers. We need money, more money. Then let each 
of us make some real personal sacrifice in order that these great needs may 
be met. 

HOME MISSIONS'. 

Among the Missionary interests of the Southern Baptist Convention none 
has a more glorious history than Home Missions. 

Many of the S'tates have been secured for the Baptist largely through the 
efforts of the Home Board. It is also true that a multitude of our large and 
influential churches through the southland owe their origin to this Board. 

We glean from the 82nd annual report of the Home Board the following 
facts: The workers of the Board during the year delivered 109,419 sermons 
and addresses; conducted 19,966 prayer meetings; made 171,239 religious 
visits; added to the churches by baptism 20,686 members; total addition 
36,233; won 840 volunteers for Christian service; constituted 168 churches; 
built or improved 278 church houses; organized 406 Sunday-schools; dis- 
tributed 11,847 Bibles and Testaments, and circulated more than a million of 
religious tracts. 

This splendid record should encourage all lovers of Kingdom work and 
move every Christian to say with the Divine writer: "Bless the Lord oh my 
soul and forget not all His benefits." However there is also a feeling of 
sadness not to say shame when we think of fields all ready ripe for the har- 
vest sadly neglected or not entered at all. 

According to the instruction of the Convention there has been drastic re- 
trenchment. In the one department of independent and direct Missions 
twenty-five missionaries were dropped and similar cuts have been made in 
all other departments. 

The Board has a large supply of tracts and leaflets on all phases of the 
Home Board work which can be secured without cost. 

We would earnestly urge that our people will in a larger way support this 
part of our work. To this end inform ourselves, pray for the work and place 
larger offerings upon God's altar. 

STATE MISSIONS. 

97 years ago this past March our State Convention was born at Greenville 
with 14 members. These wise founders realized the importance of carrying 



14 



FORTY-FIFTH ANNUAL SESSION 



out the command of the Master to begin at home. So out of this humble 
origin $700.00 was appropriated for missions and education. 

Our Past. 

As we look back over these 97 years of Baptist organization in North Caro- 
lina we can truly say our Lord has multiplied our labors into an abundant 
harvest. In 1836 there were only 15,000 Baptist in North Carolina, white and 
colored. Now there are over 600,000. Out of this vast host 375,767 are white. 
At present we have 2,325 white Baptist churches. Last year our contribu- 
tions to all benevolent objects amounted to $737,317.32. 

State Missions is due a large share of the credit to our marvelous growth 
and prosperity as a denomination. The great majority of our largest and 
most liberal churches at some time in our history received aid from our State 
Mission Board, numbered among them were the first Baptist churches of 
Rocky Mount, Greensboro and Charlotte and others in like power and pres- 
tige for service. 

The Present Field of State Mission Operations. 

This year we have 87 State Mission pastors who are serving 147 churches. 

The Department of W. M. U. has 2,443 societies with a membership of 
40,326. These good women contributed last year over $265,000 to denomina- 
tional objects. They have five general workers two in the office and three 
in the field. 

Under the efficient leadership of Bro. E. L. Middleton our Sunday-school 
work has made rapid strides. We now have 2,243 Sunday-schools with a 
membership of 323,777, we have two field workers with eleven other Asso- 
ciational Sunday.school and B. Y. P. U. workers. 

Our B. Y. P. U. under the leadership of Brother Perry Morgan has made a 
splendid progress. There are now 2,066 B. Y. P. U. organizations with a 
membership of 60,000. 

Our State Evangelists have been reduced to only two in number — J. C. 
Canipe, of Roxboro, and I. H'. Moore of Durham, who is working with the 
colored people. 

Volunteer pastors aided about 75 churches this year. 

We have Student workers at the following Colleges: Wake Forest, Chapel 
Hill, North Carolina State College at Raleigh and N. C. C. W. at Greensboro. 

For the last several years our State Board has fostered a preacher school 
at Meredith College in June. More than 250 preachers attended the past 
session. 

Our Challenging Task. 

There are 600,000 people in North Carolina without the saving Grace of 
Jesus Christ. Over 250,000 of our church members are doing nothing to ex- 
tend the Kingdom of God on earth. These must be enlisted. The vast army 
of our young people must be trained for future leadership. 

We must bring about a great revival of Christian Stewardship. 

There is a challenging call now for us to arise and liberate our denomina- 
tional schools from a burdening debt of over $1 000,000. 

We cannot afford to come with the plea of poverty for our financial con- 
dition will not justify such a claim. 

We have a net work of highways that has attracted the attention of the 
round world. Many of our sister states are watching with the purpose of 
imitating our famous school system. 

We have within our borders over one-half million automobiles that could 
not cost less than $500,000,000. We paid a federal income tax last year cf 
more than all New England combined. 

Many of our people are indulging themselves to the extent of extravagant 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION. 



15 



waste attending movies, soft drinks and pleasure resorts. S'ome people spend 
over $100.00 a year for Coca-Cola alone. Can a people with such indulgence 
and wilful waste summon enough brass to say we are not able? Nay verily! 

Surely as we face these facts it is with deepest humiliation and shame that 
within the past four years we have to admit that our State Mission budget 
has been reduced from $146,000 to $77,000. 

Christian Comrades, let us rally to our colors and carry out the command 
of Him who stood upon the Mountain and saw all the kingdoms of the world 
stretched before Him and turned away from them to the agony and bloody 
sweat of Gethsemane and the Cross of Calvary beyond. 

Yes, let us march forward in the name of Him who walked through the 
valley and shadow of deatht alone crying out in the midst of its darkness, 
"My God, my God! Why hast Thou forsaken me?" All this He endured that 
we may be able to say as we start the journey through this dark valley 
there is no fear of evil for His rod and staff will be there to comfort us. 

WOMAN'S' MISSIONARY UNION. 

Looking back at the year's work of the Woman's Missionary Union of the 
West Chowan Association, our hearts are filled with gratitude for the oppor- 
tunities for service given us, for the work of our predecessors who laid the 
foundations so strong and true, for the vision of oui leaders, for the faith 
and devotion of many of our membership, and most of all fo:- the goodness of 
God, who has so manifestly guided us. 

A substantial increase has been made in number of mission study classes 
reported, and an encouraging feature is the increasing number of young 
people taking mission study courses. One county has a circulating mission 
library. 

The women of West Chowan are supporting one missionary, Miss Pearl e 
Johnson, and giving three scholarships to Chowan College. 

Organized Personal Service is a joy to many societies, work at the County 
Home and the Prison Farm in Halifax county being among their activities. 

We regret to say that we did not reach our financial aim for the year. 
While business conditions may have had something to do with this, we feel 
that the greater cause was not using the money that we had wisely. The 
temptations to spend money for "that which is not bread" were never so 
great; many organizations are bidding for popularity, pleasure is calling 
with siren voice on every side, the lure of luxurious living is at its height. 

We call upon our women to search their hearts, reconsecrate their lives 
and simplify their living, and make their gifts for the coming year worthy 
of children of the King who are conscious of their mission on earth and its 
supreme importance. We call upon the leaders of the women's societies to 
work in their various vineyards with renewed diligence. We call upon those 
who are endeavoring to lead our young people into places of "joyous respon- 
sibility" to do it whole heartedly, as with the young, example speaks louder 
than precept. 

There must be no lagging in our program. The hour of destiny is upon us, 
a great history behind us, Jesus, our Captain, is leading us, and, if we are 
valiant and true, a glorious achievement is ahead of us. 

God arrant that in the coming year our women may, with chastened spirits 
and enlarged vision, work faithfully and with singleness of purpose, toward 
their goal. Respectfullv submitted,

REPORT ON EDUCATION. 

North Carolina is enjoying an unparalleled era in the matter of Education, 
not only in its state schools but in its denominational schools, as well. Nev- 
er before has there been such vital interest manifested in the matter of both 
high school and collegiate education in North Carolina. Whether that inner 
urge comes either from social pressure or the felt need, we must be prepared 
and equipped to meet the situation. As our pupils and students turn their 
feet towards these institutions of learning, we are constrained to answer this 
question: What kind of school shall we patronize? The one that trains the 
intellect and moral side or the one that goes one-step farther, and looks after 
and develops the Christian side. The community and the patron pay for 
either kind. Which shall it be? 

The State system must insist on high moral standards; but let us remem- 
ber that the vanguard of moral standards of today may be the rear-guard 
of tomorrow, and that today's moral standards may degenerate tomorrow 
and doubtless would but for the Christian code of ethics which is and ever 
should be lifting the existing moral standards to a higher level. To my 
mind this is the real foundation stone of Christian Education — also its ever- 
increasing task. Shall our State in its various activities be dominated by 
Christian standards of conduct? The answer lies with our churches £nd 
Christian schools. 

The value of Education depends on the attitude of heart and which if de- 
veloped simultaneously with the acquisition of useful knowledge. Again, 
the value of any education is not measured by what effect it may have on 
us, but rather what effect we may have on others. 

What will education, do for me is of secondary or minor importance, but 
what will a trained mind and heart assist me in doing for others is of Supreme 
importance. This is the crux and emphasis of Christian Education; and, to 
be sure, there is a tremendous need for such emphasis at this time of con- 
fusion and change. 

We Christians and especially Baptists have a challenging opportunity. 
What is the opportunity? And, what steps are we taking to meet the chal- 
lenge? Men and women of thought and action are asking everywhere "To 
whom shall we go?" Cultured and consecrated leadership is the need of the 
hour. Our State has not allowed the Bible to be taught in our public schools.

FORTY-FJFTH ANNUAL SESSION 



It, too, has taken charge of all the elementary schools and practically all 
the high schools, we having but one left — Boiling S'prings. On the other 
hand we have six institutions of collegiate grade as follows: Wake Forest, 
Meredith and Chowan, standard A-grade institutions and Mars Hill, Win- 
gate, and Campbell, standard junior colleges — these institutions have en- 
rollments as follows: 

Wake Forest 699 

Meredith . 533 (508 Classmen— 25 Specials) 

Chowan 151 

Mars Hill H. S. 108, Jr. C. 384 

Wingate H. S. 25, Jr., Col. 200 

Campbell H. S. 257, Jr. Col. 123 

Boiling S'prings H. S. 120 

Total College students 2090— H. S. 510— grand total 2600. 

We thus have a large number of students in our Christian colleges; but 
even so there are more Baptist students in our State schools than in all our 
Baptist schools combined. Here again is a challenge, as well as an opportun- 
ity. Our students must be trained for Christian leadership. The comparatively 
few which we train must be given the very best. 

Given the proper Christian training and attitude, think well what these 
college students now in our schools will render in the future. The cost of 
training in our schools is slightly more than that of the State institutions; 
but this is a mere nothing when we compare it with the probable service these 
students may and will render to the Kingdom of God. 

Again, some of our institutions — Wake Forest, Mars Hill, Wingate, and 
Campbell — operate summer flchools, where hordes of public school teachers 
have the opportunity of studying the Bible under thoroughly competent and 
Christian instructors. These teachers should, therefore, maintain an atti- 
ture that is not merely moral; but positively Christian. This is a service 
that our summer schools are rendering as well. 

Just this final word. Our schools must continue to grow or they will con- 
tinue to go for they have already started. 

Things that are worthwhile cost money. We must put our sons and sub- 
stance in our male schools and our daughters and dollars in our girls' schools. 
The State is doing this. We, therefore, must do this if we attempt to cope 
with the state schools. We must provide, through our co-operative program 
the necessary financial sustenance for these, our institutions, until we can 
increase their respective endowments. Not only this, but we are already 
in the beginning of a centennial campaign to free our institutions from the 
staggering burden cf debt, that they may be free to deal with the quality 
as well as the quantity of work, and grow into their right and useful places. 

If we are to be worthy heirs to the God-directed pioneers, who started these 
enterprises, we must not, we cannot, having set our minds and hearts to 
the task, look back. We have the ideals, we have eager minds, hungering 
for truth and hearts aglow for service. We have the money. What we need 
is a new consecrated vision and the sacrifices will be made. 

Let us give our ideals an opportunity to direct our money so that these 
eager minds and glowing hearts may be prepared for Christian service — and 
His Kingdom will surely come — thereby doing, we can help in answering our 
own prayers. You may ask how can we support our schools? Your commit- 
tee asks: Can we afford not to support our schools? 

On motion to adopt Dr. W. B. Edwards spoke on Chowan College

FORTY-FIFTH ANNUAL SESSION 



28* Historian's report was read and adopted as follows : 
REPORT OF HISTORIAN. 

In the light of the digest of church letters, and the page dedicated to our 
dead there is not left much to report. However we might mention some 
building programs which have been completed, and some in prospect. 

Roberts Chapel church entered their new brick building the fifth Sunday 
in May and the cost of the building and the furnishings is about $19,000.00. 
The new building has given new encouragement and inspiration to all the 
work of the church. 

Askewville is enjoying the benefits of her new Sunday School plant and 
also the electric lights recently installed. 

Capeharts has built commodious Sunday School rooms and the new equip- 
ment is quickening greater interest in the teaching of the Bible. 

Potecasi is building a commodious house of worship with modern equip- 
ment. 

Ahoskie has purchased a new site north of the railroad and expects to 
begin work on their new house soon. 

The resignation of Rev. Chas. C. Smith at Cashie church took effect the 
first of January, 1927, and Dr. C. C. Cox began his work as pastor of the same 
church the first of March, 1927. 

Christian Harbor church has a new piano the gift of the Christian Harbor 
Betterment Association. 

Harrellsville also has a piano the gift of Mrs. A. C. Williams, who is one 
of their members. 

, Meherrin lost one of her deacons by death, C. C. Parker. 

Rev. C. M. Billings lost his wife by death, who had been sick for some 
years, but through all her years of invalidism she showed a beautiful and 
brave Christian spirit. 

Aulander was organized in 1886. The early founders were A. W. Early, 
C. W. Mitchell, J. H. Powell, J. E. Lang and others. The following men 
have served as pastors: C. W. Scarborough, L. M. Curtis, Walter Britt, R. L. 
Gay, M. P. Davis, James Long, and the present pastor, J. Fred Stimson. 

Since the last Association Aulander has built a new church as we all ob- 
serve at a cost of over $40,000.00. The house and furnishings with the pipe 
organ cost about $50,000.00. The gift of the organ was by one of its members. 

Jackson has spent between four and five thousand dollars on Sunday 
School rooms and equipment. 

Rich Square has spent about eight hundred dollars on improvements.

Under the head of old business came the report of the Superintendent, Miss 
Una White. Her report showed that the Union had made progress in many 
ways. One of the outstanding things was increase in Mission Study Classes. 
She reported the total gifts of all organizations, were $13,515.77, falling short 
the aim a little over $2,0.00 though nineteen churches reached their appor- 
tionment. 

The Societies giving over $1,000 were Ahoskie giving $1,153.39, Aulander 
$1,063.43. Ahoskie leads in membership of 110, also in greatest number of 
Fiblical Recorder subscribers having 50. Republican leads in Home and 
Foreign Field subscribers, having 31, while Powellsville and Meherrin led in 
Royal Service subscriptions both having 15 subscribers. From a church 
membership of 7,000 women in the Association only 1,757 are enlisted in 
W. M. U. All can see readily the cry of the hour is "Enlistment." Miss 
White's report shows the workers are realizing more fully the strength of 
prayer and as a result 40 Societies have observed S'tate Mission Week of 
Prayer, 38 Home Mission Week of Prayer, and 40 Foreign Mission Week of 
Prayer.

The aim of the Superintendent for the Union for the following year: 
More Mission Study classes. A continual campaign for Enlistment. Increase 
of tithers from 184 to 500 and each society striving to reach Standard of 
Excellence. 

The report was adopted. 

The report of Secretary and Treasurer was postponed until afternoon. 

The Personal Service Superintendent Mrs. G. T. Underwood, gave a re- 
port that showed through the organized activity the program did not name 
so many items as when individual was given but greater activities had been 
accomplished. The Juniors reported better this year. Some churches sent 
xeports from each organization. 

Some of the outstanding services were: Religious services conducted in 
County Homes and at State Farm, clothing and food for unfortunates, Cot- 
tage prayer meetings, one good will Center, Mission Sunday school. Taking 
invalids to church and societies, feeding undernourished babies milk. 

This report was adopted. : 

Though great the task of interesting the Societies in Mission Study, the 
Superintendent, Mrs. Mary Green, has wrought great things throughout the 
Association, more Mission Study Classes in the W. M. XL, and even the Jun- 
ior organizations have conducted many. A total of 63 classes were conducted 
with 492 women and Juniors studying and 217 received seals. 

Report was adopted. 

Mrs. W. R. Burrell, the Y. W. A. and G. A. Superintendent, showed she 
had done much work and by much persuasion had kept a better check on 
the Junior organization than ever before. She urged more consecration and 
consideration on the part of Junior leaders to report the work and push for- 
ward to enlist others. 

Report was adopted. 

The report of the Superintendent of R. A.'s and Sunbeams, Mrs. Martha 
Askew, was as follows: A plea for leaders to report, enlist, and that more 
women be willing to take hold and work with R. A. particularly. 

Number of Sunbeam Bands reporting, 38. 

Number of R. A. Bands reporting, 10.

15 Sunbeam Bands reported each quarter and only 4 R. A.'s reported quar- 
terly. Three Sunbeam Bands reached Standard of Excellence, Ahoskie, Cole- 
rain and Hebron. 

Report was adopted. 

REPORT OF COUNTY PRESIDENTS. 

Mrs. L. E. Daily, Bertie County President, reported advancement in amount 
of organized Personal Service, in Mission Study, even many secured 
Seals. The County Union supported two Bible women, gave two scholar- 
ships to girls at Chowan College. They have a Woman's Missionary Society 
in each church. , 

Mrs. R. B. Lineberry reported for Hertford county four meetings with good 
speakers and programs rendered; with an average attendance of 2-3 of mem- 
bership present at each meeting. Three churches have all five organizations. 
A Chowan scholarship, a plea for more Junior organizations. 

Miss Mazie Calvert, of Northampton county, reported special emphasis 
had been laid on Standard of Excellence. One Chowan Scholarship given 
one Training School scholarship, a Mission Study Library for the county. 

Each County President reported work being done on Pearle Johnson fund. 

Each of these reports adopted., 

The Nominating Committee was elected as follows: Mrs. W. S. Cowan, of 
Bertie County; Mrs. P. D. Sewell, Hertford county; Miss Mazie Calvert, 
Northampton county. 

The committees on Time and Place, Obituary, Literature, and Resolutions 
were appointed. 

Miss Judith Calvert of Jackson, brought a message in a lovely solo. 

Our hearts were then made glad by our beloved State President, Mrs. W. 
N. Jones, of Raleigh, bringing to the Union a soul-stirring message on "En- 
listment." Her introduction was a theme of gratification at West Chowan's 
progress and of North Carolina's progress. Only Texas and Virginia stand 
ahead of North Carolina in Southern Baptist Convention. Then she showed 
the need even yet of the whiten Harvest and few laborers. The Southern 
Baptist Convention have given 27 million in the past 40 years, North Caro- 
lina giving $3,000,000 of that largely through women sacrificing, yet enlist- 
ment of other women has not gripped the heart of W. M. U. workers like 
giving of dollars. She insisted that each S'ociety must increase 10 per cent 
and bring in more Juniors. Ideals, she said must be above attainments and 
remember the W. M. U. workers are not dependent on self but always power 
of prayer: "Pray ye," she urged. If only we could realize that not Japan, 
Africa and China alone needed Christ but here among us is the need, we 
would work and pray more. She pleaded that each W. M. U. would take 
the year's motto more serious, "The Master has come and calleth for thee". 
Jesus called Mary because she needed the call and likewise He calls women 
today. It is a call of Love, of hands, heart, time, lips and self. Material 
progress is everywhere evident. Does the spiritual world equal it? "He

looked unto them and they were radiant." He calls each of you to a radiant 
life, for "The Master has come and calls for Thee." 

Mr. R. B. Lineberry made an announcement inviting every one to dinner 
on ground and then dismissed the audience with prayer. 



AFTERNOON SESSION. 

The afternoon session was opened by singing, "Must Jesus Bear the Cross 
Alone?" Miss Una White presiding. 

Miss Dorothy Long, of Severn, conducted the devotional exercises, using 
as a scripture, the 9th chapter of Matthew. 

The minutes of the morning session were read and adopted. 

Following this three 10-minute talks were given. 

First, "Personal Service" by Mrs. W. J. Griffin. Personal work and its 
work in rural churches, proves there is a place in rural churches for it. 
She inspired and informed even those who live in the most remote rural 
section that though no jail or factories exist that there is Personal Service 
for wherever there are people, there are sick souls and bodies and aged 
that need ministering unto. Her motto was "Personal Service" means Pre- 
senting our Saviour. 

Second, Mrs. N. H. STiepherd treated "Mission Study, How to organize and 
Conduct a Mission Study in Rural Church." No one was fitted better than r : he 
for the subject as she has successfully done this work. She gave ideas that fit- 
ted rural churches. She especially stressed Patience, Prayer, Determination 
and Enthusiasm. She said to make folks want to study missions the leader 
must really want to, and stressed the need of loyal support of this work 
from pastors. , 

Third, Baptist Periodicals and How to Use Them in Our Programs, was 
handled by one of our former Training School girls, Miss Foy Peele. She 
said as Baptists we should strictly line up with material that informs of 
Baptist work. Our work would be better organized by using systematic 
graded program given in our magazine. Our talks should be based on the 
magazines' articles — the suggested poster advertising would increase attend- 
ance. The daily Bible readings and Quiz would aid our knowledge of the 
Bible. Poems would add to program if memorized. Location and name of 
missionaries would familiarize us with our workers and work as would cur- 
rent events. Playlettes for the young folks would enliven their interest. 
And no training is as good for the children as the material in the Junior 
magazines. 

A duet, "I Waited for the Lord," was beautifully given by Mrs. E. L. Gat- 
ling and Miss Pritchard, of Windsor. 

Mrs. S\ E. Ayers who has been in China for many years, inspired and 
thrilled the audience with her enthusiastic and spiritual address on China 
giving many stirring experiences of our missionares. She followed with 
impressive pictures of the people, land, customs, superstitions and religions. 
She said they are not the treacherous people we believe them but are kind, 
industrious and grateful though superstittious. Her plea was for mission?

for them as they are a people that Christ died for and loved them as He loved 
us. H'er closing message "What is your part in giving Christ to China." 
She urged clean lives on our part, for God does not ask for beautiful vessels 
but He does demand clean vessels, prayerful life and a whole surrender of 
the life.

CONSTITUTION 



NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the North Carolina West 
Chowan Baptist Association. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches 
connected with this body, and all ordained ministers who are members or 
pastors of said churches, together with the officers of this Association, and 
chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of one hundred mem- 
bers and under shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each additional 
one hundred members, an additional messenger; provided, that no church 
shall have more than four messengers. 

OBJECTS 

Article 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend measures for 
increasing the harmony, the intelligence and the spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources 
and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom in the earth. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the 
sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor 
legislative council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches and 
recommend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but can not bind 
them in any way. Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelli- 
gence of the body, it may justly claim for itself, for its objects and for its 
recommendation the very highest consideration and regard. 

Artcile 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any church 
that becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice, or that fails 
to represent itself, either by messenger or letter, more than two succes- 
sive sessions, without sufficient reasons, or that treats with contempt its 
objects and requirements, or tipon application of a church for dismission.

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

In obedience to the last great commission of our Master it is our one 
great desire to make disciples of all the nations. We may not be held 
chargeable if we fail in bringing the world to Christ, but surely the re- 
sponsibility is upon us to take Christ to all the world. We joyfully 
anticipate the day, when the Gospel having been preached to all the nation, 
there shall be ushered in the fulfillment of that blessed hope, the second 
appearing of our Divine Lord. 

The substance of this report is taken from an admirable summarization 
of the work of the Foreign Mission Board during the past year by Dr. 
T. B. Ray. 

Perhaps the outstanding event in connection with the work of our 
Board during this period was the death of our Corresponding Secretary, 
Dr. James Franklin Love. He served in this capacity for 14 years, and 
passed to his reward on May 3, 1928. Invaluable service was rendered by 
him with his pen; by his conference with our missionaries on their respec- 
tive fields and the encouragement given them; by his unswerving loyalty 
to that body of doctrine held by all Regular Baptist Churches, and by his 
indefatigable self-denying labors for the Kingdom in all its ramifications. 
Truly a great and a good man has fallen in Israel. 

ENCOURAGING FEATURES 

I can refer to the encouraging phases of our work abroad only in a 
fragmentary way: 

The chaotic and ominous situation which prevailed in China a year 
ago has altered for the better; although not cleared altogether, the anti- 
foreign and anti-Christian sentiments have abated in no small degree. The 
Board has twenty-eight main stations where missionaries reside. Mis- 
sionaries have returned and are living in twenty-four of these stations; 
occasional visits are made by missionaries to the remaining four. None of 
these stations are fully manned but that so many have returned is quite 
encouraging. 

Our mission in Africa has increased greatly in the last few years. It 
now ranks third in the number of members of our churches. Last year 
it stood third in the number of baptisms. There is a great trend toward 



io 



FORTY-SIXTH ANNUAL SESSION 



the Gospel, which assumes the proportions of a mass movement, and our 
churches are alive with evangelical zeal. 

The Latin American lands to the south of us are responding to the 
preaching of the Gospel in a splendid way. Brazil had 2,925 baptisms 
last year. The preaching of Dr. John R. Sampey in his two Brazilian tours 
won many to Christ even though compelled to give the message through an 
interpreter. 

I think the following fact should be chronicled though we have not 
time for elaboration: On February 1, 1928, the Roumanian Government 
granted Baptists full liberty of teaching, and treatment on equal footing 
with all Roumanian citizens. 

There are connected with our work abroad 1,275 churches, more than 
half are self-supporting and 959 own their own houses of worship. There 
were 12,542 baptisms last year; 457 more than the number reported the 
previous year. 

THE DEBT 

The debt on January 1, 1928, was $1,145,729. By May 1st it wa 5 re- 
duced to $1,065,791.18. This shows a reduction during the period mention- 
ed of $79,938.56. 

The definite plan for the reduction of the debt is as follows: 

1. Ten per cent will be taken monthly from the receipts of the Co- 
operative Program and applied to the debt. 

2. Certain properties in the home and in the foerign lands, belonging 
to the board, which cannot be developed for the work of the board, will 
be sold. 

3. Special gifts by friends for the reduction of the debt. Substantial 
sums have been received for this purpose. The appropriations for the 
present year have been made at such a low figure that the debt will not 
be further increased. 

Brethren, character is revealed in the time of crises. At this crucial 
period in the work of all our denomination enterprises may God grant us 
the courage to quit ourselves like men. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. C. COX, Chairman on Missions. 

SUGGESTED ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

The Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention made 
its eighty-third annual report to the convention in Chattanooga last May. 
Notwithstanding serious falling off in receipts for several years past and 
necessary retrenchment in the work of the board, the year's work was most 
encouraging. The faithful sowing of former years brought a glorious 
harvest of souls won to Christ. The field of the Home Mission Board in- 
cludes all the territory in the bounds of the Southern Baptist Convention 
with Western Cuba and the Canal Zone. 

The board's work is done through the Departments of Co-operative Mis- 
sions, Independent and Direct Missions, Evangelist, Mountain Mission 
Schools, Cuba and Panama, Church Extension and the Tuberculosis Sana- 
torium, El Paso, Texas. The executive secretary has general supervision 
of all the work and specially in charge of Co-operative Missions. 

Co-operative Missions is that work done jointly by the Home Mission 
Board and various State Mission Boards. It has been the one great, unify- 
ing feature of our mission work and has meant much to the unity of 
Southern Baptists. 

In the Department of Independent and Direct Missions, which is under 
the sole direction and support of the Home Mission Board, work is done 
among the Foreigners, Indians, Negroes, Deaf-Mutes, Soldiers and Sea- 
men, with Rev. J. W. Beale, superintendent. The work has been wonder- 
fully blessed during the past year. The same can be said of our Mountain 
Mission Schools under the direction of Rev. J. W. O'Hara, superintendent, 
and of the work in Cuba with Rev. M. N. McCall, superintendent, which 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



11 



has been greatly blessed and is growing steadily stronger. The Depart- 
ment of Evangelism as a soul-winning agency has a record unsurpassed. 
Through the Church Extension Department, Rev. A. J. Barton, superin- 
tendent, the Home Mission Board makes loans to churches towards the erec- 
tion of houses of worship at reasonable- rate of interest and time. On re- 
quest, the board will send free literature, such as tracts and leaflets, on 
different phases of the work. 

Record of Ten Years: From the annual reports of the board it is 
learned that in the last ten years 89,300 converts were baptized and 111,- 
015 added to the churches through the labors of our evangelists. We have 
had during that time 4,165 converts in our mountain schools, 4,146 grad- 
uates, and influences have been set in motion which will not cease until 
our Lord comes. 

Ten years ago our Cuban Convention had 57 delegates and their total 
offerings were $4,065.21, with membership 1,919; in 1927 there were 108 
delegates at the convention and their offerings for the year were $21,- 
223.00, and the membership increased to 2,737. The native churches in 
Cuba during the ten years contributed something over $125,000. The 
spirit of Evangelism is reported strong. 

A summary of the board's work for ten years shows the following re- 
sults: Baptisms, 344,966; additions to the churches, 556,957; prayer meet- 
ings conducted, 175,088; churches constituted, 1,905; Sunday schools or- 
ganized, 6,128; houses built, 4,184. 

The Home Mission task was never greater and our opportunities never 
so inviting. The calls are many, and the future, if we are loyal to the 
Master, has great things in store for Southern Baptists through our great 
Home Mission agency. The challenge is tremendous but our forces and 
resources are well-nigh immeasurable and under the blessing of God must 
be brought under contribution to the salvation of the lost and the enlist- 
ment and development of the saved. May God lead us in this great task 
of making America Christian and through America saving the world for 
Christ!

STATE MISSIONS 

Ninety-eight years have passed since the organization of the North Caro- 
lina Baptist State Convention. We have achieved great success in our 
effort to implant the principles of Jesus Christ upon the life of our State; 
but we have much territory yet to conquer. 

We have at this good hour more than a half-million unsaved souls, 
above the years of accountability; surely we cannot be content so long as 
this state of affairs exist. We have 2,368 Baptist Churches in North Caro- 
lina, 634 of which did not report a single baptism last year. Surely there 
is an urgent need for a revival of religion in our churches. 

The crying need as we see it, is that of enlistment. Hundreds of our 
churches throughout the State, and multiplied thousands of our members 
are not contributing one penny of that which the Lord has intrusted to 
them to the ongoing of His Kingdom. This condition is prevalent from 
the seashore to the mountain top, and wherever there is a lack of informa- 
tion concerning the will of the Master, and the needs of a sin-cur3ed world. 

The industrial situation throughout Piedmont North Carolina is appal- 
ing. Into this section New England mills are moving bodily, and with 
their coming will also come the problems and perils that have blighted the 
religious life of the North and the East. Our State Mission Board must 
meet this situation at once or suffer irreparable loss. A number of towns 
in this section are already appealing to our board for help, but our hands 
are tied for the lack of funds. 

Having taken a glimpse of our State Mission Task, now let us view in 
the next place our machinery and organization. 

The General Board of Missions, of which Dr. Charles E. Maddry is 



12 



FORTY-SIXTH ANNUAL SESSION 



secretary, is the organized machinery or agency through which North Caro- 
lina Baptists are tackling their problems. 

This General Board is divided into four department, viz: Missions, 
Education, Training Activities and Benevolence. 

Notice first the Department of Mission. Walter M. Gilmore is secre- 
tary of this department. Through this department 134 churches are being 
aided this year in the paying of the salaries of 87 pastors. These men 
baptised into the fellowship of their churches last year 1,453, and re- 
ceived 1,266 by letter or otherwise. 

Note again the W. M. U. Department. Mrs. W. N. Jones, president, 
while Mrs. Edna R. Harris is corresponding secretary. Their last report 
shows 4,947 active Missionary Societies of which 708 were organized dur- 
ing the past year. Their contributions for the past year for benevolence 
totalled $278,083, which was several thousand dollars more than the goal 
set. In addition to the office force there are four special field workers for 
the summer. Dorothy Kellum is the Young People's leader. 

Let us notice again. The Sunday School Department. Perry Morgan 
is secretary; Gladys Beck, elementary secretary, and E. L. Morgan, field 
worker. 

In addition to these there are four Associational and Sectorial Sunday 
School and B. Y. P. U. workers. The last report from thi3 department 
shows 2 ; 258 Baptist Sunday Schools in the State with a membership of 
334,233, an increase of over 10,000 over the previous year. 

Nov/ let us take a look at our B. Y. P. U. Department. James A. Ivey, 
secretary; Winnie Rickett, Junior Intermediate secretary; Marguriet Har- 
rison and Mary Francis Biggers are field workers. The last report gives 
1928 B. Y. P. U. organizations with a membership of 44,344. 

We want to call your attention in the next place to our Evangelistic 
Department. We now have three white evangelists, viz: J. M. Page, J. R. 
Cantrell and S. T. Hensley. These men have only been in the employ- 
ment of the board for a comparatively short time and your committee does 
not have a report of their work. Our board also pays one-half of the 
salary of J. H. Moore, colored evangelist, who does work among the Negro 
Baptists of the State. 

We also are doing a splendid work through our Student Acti vities. The 
board is co-operating in maintaining the following student workers, L. H. 
Tanscott, at Carolina; Yancey C. Elliott, North Carolina State; Cleo Mit- 
chell, N. C. C. W., and Joyce Beamon, at Boone. The work of these 
student workers at these educational centers is to look after the religious 
interests of the well-nigh 2,000 or more young men and women who have 
gathered there from Baptists home. 

Note again the Pastors' School. This school is conducted for ten days 
in June at Meredith College. Three hundred and twenty-five pastors with 
their wives were enrolled there last June. 

The last agency is the Baptist Book Shop. Madge Alderman is man- 
ager. This department is doing a great work in distributing religious books 
and periodicals. 

To carry on the work of State Missions, the board only asks for 23 
per cent out of all undesignated funds.

REPORT ON WOMAN'S WORK 

As we Teview the year's work of the Woman's Missionary Union of the 
West Chowan Association, we are not satisfied with our achievements, but 
grateful to God that through us He has allowed His work to prosper. 

Throughout the Association each Missionary organization has grown in 
membership as well as financially. Twenty-five new societies have been 
organized and we trust that by the close of the year our goal for this Ruby 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



13 



Anniversary year of thirty-four new organizations may be realized. 

There has been an increase in the number of subscriptions to all our 
religious periodicals. A greater number of societies observed the weeks 
of prayer; reported more regularly to State officers and did more organized 
personal service. 

The Missionary Societies of the Association are supporting Miss Pearle 
Johnson, a missionary in China, and are giving four scholarships to worthy 
girls at Chowan College. One county is giving a scholarship to the Louis- 
ville Training School and has a circulating mission library. 

Each county has held their regular quarterly all-day meetings and in 
this way has kept the work constantly before the societies. 

Our financial aim for the year was not reached and we feel that this was 
not because of a lack of funds so much as it is a need of renewed consecra- 
tion of all that we possess — our time, our lives and our means. 

Let us resolve that we will put first things first in our lives and con- 
duct and God grant that we may put our watchword for the year into 
real, active service — "Enlarge — Spare Not — Lengthen — Strengthen." 
Isaiah 54.2. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. E. C. BOONE.

tionment committee and reports from convention. 

13. Report on Education was read by J. I. Kendrick. Dr. 
Gaines was recognized, and addressed the Association on 
"Christian Education. ,, Dr. Maddry made some timely re- 
marks about the pressing need for funds for general work and 
for Centennial Fund. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Education means development. This, to be complete, must be a develop- 
ment of the complete personality, the physical, mental and spiritual. Any 
education that neglects either of these is to that extent defective. 

The education of the Hebrews was of this kind and their educational 
history began when all the people under Nehemiah and Ezra, accepted 
with solemn oaths the Law of Moses as the rule in their life. 



14 



FORTY-SIXTH ANNUAL SESSION 



To observe the written law, and not simply the verbal instruction of 
the priests, they must know it. This called for education, and in Christ's 
time the Hebrews were the best educated people in the world. Because 
of their knowledge of God's word they came to be known as "the people 
of the Book." 

This was not a mere happen so, for the religion of Jesus presupposes 
education and His program demands it. 

The New Testament came into being as the completion of God's re- 
vealed will. It is and will ever remain "the Christian's source book, his 
law of faith and practice." 

Baptists, too, are a people of the Book, and because of our doctrine 
of individual competency and responsibility, as taught in the Book, we are 
under solemn obligation to read and interpret for ourselves. 

The fathers of our Baptist State Convention were quick to see this 
and that to do so, in the most effective way, called for education. 

It is distinctly to their credit that they set the meeting of this need 
of education, in the very forefront of their aims in the organization of the 
convention. Accordingly, in a short time Wake Forest College came 
into being. 

It was then and there also that the purpose was formed for establishing 
in Raleigh a college for women. For some reason this purpose was delayed 
in being carried out until 1899, when Meredith College was born. 

The other colleges in our educational program are the following with 
the date of the founding of each: Chowan College, in 1848; Mars Hill 
College, in 1859; Campbell College, in 1887; Wingate College, in 1895, and 
Boiling Springs, in 1905. 

All seven of these have wrought well and deserve the liberal patronage 
of our people, both with their sons and daughters, and with their means. 

The churches of this Association have just reason for having special 
interest in Chowan College because of its splendid contribution, by virtue 
of its location, toward the making of the citizenship of this section of the 
country, as also for the pleasing prospect that this good work will increase 
as time goes on. 

The wisdom of the educational policy projected by our Baptist fathers 
at the organization of the Convention in 1830, is amply justified in the 
continued increase of our Baptist Churches in number and also in in- 
fluence and efficiency. 

We give renewed and hearty approval to the proposition to crown the 
first century of our denominational history by having already in the Lord's 
treasury, at its close, all of the proposed million and a half dollars for 
Christian Education. 

With gratitude to God for the success thus far achieved in this holy 
enterprise, let us of this West Chowan Association, join hands afresh 
with every other association in the State, with the solemn determination 
to bring it to a glorious finish. 

Thus shall we not only befittingly celebrate the centennial birthday of 
our Convention, but also give worthy expression of our gratitude to God 
for the sacrificial labors of our noble sires, and highest of all glorify our 
Saviour and Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 
JAS. I. KENDRICK, N. W. BRITTON, Committee.

16. D. P. Harris read the report on Social Service. 

REPORT ON SOCIAL SERVICE 

November 11, 1928, will mark the date when 43 years ago (1885) the 
first child was received at our Baptist Orphanage at Thomasville, N. C. 
From the very beginning this institution has had first and paramount 
place in the hearts and minds of North Carolina Baptists. It has always 
been measurably easy to raise funds for its support. The cry of parent- 
less, homeless, and helpless children has been the one appeal to our sym- 
pathies and our prayers, as well as to our generosity. One of our regrets 
now is, that there is not sufficient room to care for hundreds of others who 
make application for admission to the Orphanage. We do, however, feel 
very grateful to our Heavenly Father that we have such an institution, 
and that we have been permitted to do even what has been done for un- 
fortunate children within our State. And furthermore, we cannot think of 
a day that will ever come when our people will close their ears, and hearts, 
and hands to the needs of all such. 

I am attaching hereto the Orphanage report as of April of this year. 
The report reads as follows, viz: 

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

This resembles a report on a home, only it is many times multiplied. 

The last annual report gave 618 children present; of these 117 were at 
the- Kennedy Home. With 68 mothers there were aided 282 children, mak- 
ing in all 900 children cared for. 

On account of shortage of funds fewer were cared for by mother's aid 
than a year ago. 

Some six or eight hundred were turned away f«r lack of room, and no 
more could be helped by mother's aid for lack of funds. 

For 43 years this stream of children has been coming in and passing 
on out into life with added preparation for the struggle there. That they 
be fitted and fortified for real living is the matter of chief concern. Our 
infirmary with a trained nursei and skilled physicians, who come at a 
moment's call, look after the health; our housekeeping, farm, dairy, print- 
ing office and other forms of industry, give skill to their hands; a standard 
school looks after their minds; and the religious life led by Pastor E. N. 
Gardner, also a teacher of the Bible, is not neglected. 

There is a painful discrepancy between the number of pressing ap- 
plications for help and the contributions coming in. So far we are not as 
badly in debt as we were a year ago at this time, but contributions are far 
below our expenditures. 

Again every Baptist Sunday School is asked to make a contribution once 
a month. In some schools single classes support a child. Remember the 
Thanksgiving offering measured by one's day's work or income as an ex- 
pression of gratitude and thus enable the Orphanage to do its work. We 
would encourage a club of Charity and Children in every school, 60 cents 
a copy in clubs of ten or more to one address. It is one dollar to a single 
subscriber. We ask that a special Orphanage representative be appointed 
to aid the institution in keeping in touch with the Sunday School. 

OUR BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

In the few brief years of its history our Baptist Hospital at Winston- 
Salem has grown from small beginnings to be* one of the leading Baptist 
hospitals in the South. Almost 10,000 patients have received treatment 
since it opened its doors. This institution was established primarily to 
care for those who could not care for themselves. Its management, its 
nurses, its doctors, are of the very highest type of cultured, refined, Chris- 
tian men and women, who are untiring in their efforts to serve both the 



16 



FORTY-SIXTH ANNUAL SESSION 



individual and the hospital to the best of their ability. Its location fotf 
health and ease of accessibility could hardly be improved upon. Last year 
the death rate was only 14% per thousand. This is lower than any other 
hospital reporting to the Duke Endowment. 

Some may argue that it is too far for those of us in this Association 
to patronize. And we must admit that there is something in the argu- 
ment, but we must remember that we cannot be selfish in this matter, 
must not look upon our own things, but upon those of another, and do 
what we can to maintain the hospital for the sake of many who have to 
go there because unable to pay their own bills at home or abroad. 

The demands for charity this year have been much larger than be- 
fore. Yet the hospital has received about $4,000.00 less for charity work 
than it did last year. There is the prospect of 600 charity patients this 
year, and this will mean an expenditure of about $35,000.00. You can 
plainly see that the Mothers' Day contribution, which is around $12,000.00, 
is not enough to meet this, and that the deficit must be made up out of 
other funds which may come to the hospital, and which are needed to pay 
off its obligations in other directions. 

The nurses home has been built, and at the beginning of the year was 
carrying a debt of $14,000.00. The Duke Endowment agreed to pay 
$5,000.00 of this amount, provided the hospital would pay off the entire 
debt this year. Last year the hospital had to pay out of its funds the sum 
of $7,000.00 to complete the charity funds from the churches. This amount 
should have been applied to its debt. 

The management suggests the following which we recommend: 

1. That we urge all our people to carry their pay patients there when 
possible and give the hospital the advantage of this increased revenue. 

2. That churches sending charity patients will either themselves pay 
the sum of $1.50 a day, or get the family and community to join them in 
raising this much that the hospital may be helped to tide over this emer- 
gency. This will mean a very little for the church or community but when 
500 churches do this, it means a great deal for the hospital. The hospital 
must take those who need to come and by dividing the burden with the 
churches, it can do so. If the churches fail to do this, then the hospital 
will be compelled to turn all charity down after the money appropriated 
has been all spent. 

3. Pray for the hospital, talk about it in your church and Sunday 
school and in every way encourage our people to support the great in- 
stitution dedicated to the business of relieving suffering and saving life. 

4. Remember to put on the program and take an offering for this 
great work on Mothers' Day, or some other day, in the Sunday school for 
the care of those who are suffering and have no money. 

Do all this for Jesus' sake and for the sake of our brother for whom 
our Master died. 

MINISTERS RELIEF AND ANNUITY 

The work of ministerial relief is carried on through the Relief and An- 
nuity Board, located in Dallas, Texas. During the 10 years of its existence 
it distributed $1,136,476.48 to its beneficiaries. At this time there are 
1,053 ministers and widows on the roll, besides 150 orphan children who 
are being cared for. The total sum paid to its beneficiaries last year was 
$118,520.47. In addition to the regular receipts through the co-operative 
program, the board receives as interest from its endowment and reserve 
funds the sum of $543,000.00. Southern Baptists are now seeking to in- 
crease the relief fund to $1,000,000.00. 

The Annuity Department is sustained in three ways. 

1. By the regular payment of ministers and missionaries who hold 
certificates of membership. 

2. By the interest earnings on the endowment and reserve. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION

3. By a portion of the funds contributed through the co-operative 
program. 

Southern Baptists are looking forward to the day when they can pro- 
vide for their ministers and for the widows and orphans of ministers in 
a worthy way. A greater Annuity plan has been worked out, and it is 
hoped to have this in operation by 1930 or 1931. This plan has been ap- 
proved by the S. B. C. 

The ministers are asked to pay 2 % % of their salaries, and the churches 
are asked to pay 8%. Thus every Southern Baptist minister can face the 
future and old age, or previous incapacity, without undue anxiety. 

There has for many years been in our churches a growing feeling that 
some such provision should be made for the ministers who have spent their 
time and strength, and their all in faithful services to the churches which 
they have served. These men have lived on salaries all too small. They 
rave been shut out of all opportunities for making and saving money. 
Their sacrificial spirit is unsurpassed; and the best thinking people of our 
denomination have come to the point where they are unwilling that such 
faithful men of God, who have ministered to them at all times and under 
all circumstances, should at last be neglected in any way. They have 
therefore put their heads and hearts together to m?ke provision for their 
needs in old age or earlier inability. 

LAW OBSERVANCE AND THE EIGHTEENTH AMENDMENT 

For eight years now we have had national prohibition. On the one 
side we have observed the benefits of prohibition as they gradually piled 
up. It is not within the limits of this report to undertake to name them. 
But on the other hand we find the liquor forces and opponents of this law 
making every effort to discredit it, and even to undo it, and if possible 
to have it either removed from the Constitution of the United States or so 
modified and changed as to make it ineffective and useless. We know that 
enforcement has been far from perfect. We had not expected it would be 
perfect. No law has ever been perfectly enforced. If laws could be per- 
fectly enforced, we would not need them. But the friends of humanity 
and of righteousness must never slacken their efforts until unfaithful office 
holders who have proven recreant to their tasks shall have been put down 
and out. Many changes are already taking place that furnish us ground 
for hoping for better enforcement of the prohibition laws. A reorganiza- 
tion bill has been passed by Congress which puts prohibition agents under 
civil service as one of its important provisions. The purpose of this law 
is to take the selection of prohibition agents out of the reach of scheming 
and trading politicians. We are now passing through a condition of serious 
concern, requiring sober judgment, and great wisdom and courageous action. 
To find and pursue the wise course is difficult, but we are not foolish, nor 
are we fanatical, but a sober minded people, determining to do the right 
thing as God shall give us wisdom. As an Association, and as Southern 
Baptists, we will stand for truth and morality, for sobriety and for 
righteousness. 

Your committee would most heartily recommend that our oeople stand 
loyally by the work of the Anti-Saloon League and by the W. C. T. U. 

SABBATH OBSERVANCE 

m What are we doing with our Sabbath days? It is a source of great 
grief and anxiety when we observe what many of even our church mem- 
bers are doing with their Sabbath days. So many are spending this day 
of worship out on the highways, with apparently no thought or concern as 
to the proper use of the day and its privileges. To them it has become a 
day for mere pleasure seeking for pleasure's sake. The Sabbath was made 
for man, but not for his abuse. God on his Sabbath gave himself exclu- 
sively to Sabbath work — salvation. There are no rules in the New Testa- 
ment governing the observance of the Sabbath. It had its origin in the in- 
stinctive yearning to commemorate the new creation instead of the old; 



18 



FORTY-SIXTH ANNUAL SESSION 



the beginning- of the spiritual life instead of the natural; the birth of the 
new man instead of the old; of the eternal instead of the mortal. The re- 
deemed of God will observe this day with special delight, for it is the 
commemoration of the resurrection, and the resurrection is to the ransomed 
man his present happiness and his eternal hope. We would insist that this 
day be used not so much as a day of rest, but of delightful work — rest from 
toil, but freedom to work. Let us rejoice in the scripture declaration that 
the Sabbath is an anticipation of Heaven, whose inhabitants resit from 
their labors, but their works follow with them. All labor comes from sin; 
work is divine. God works, but never labors. Let us observe the day as 
God has intended. Then at last we shall stand with grateful and glad 
hearts overflowing, and shall say, "Here am I and the children Thou hast 
given me." 

Very rescectfully submitted, 

D. P. HARRIS.

REPORT ON THE CENTENNIAL CAMPAIGN IN THE 
WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 

Last October at the annual meeting in Aulnader, Dr. Chas. E. Maddry 
presented the Centennial Campaign. It was a great appeal for our Baptist 
schools. It was then voted to put on the campaign in this Association. A 
director was appointed and the goal of $50,000.00 set to be raised. 

Work was begun immediately. The general plan of organization for 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



19 



the State was followed in this Association. It was expected that the cam- 
paign would close in two months, but because of unfavorable weather in 
December it was neecssary to continue the work until the middle of 
February. 

To begin with there were many difficulties to be met, but with the 
splendid co-operation of the pastors the cause steadily grew in favor as 
the campaign advanced. It could hardly be expected that the full quota 
would be reached in view of the Chowan Crusade which closed just six 
months before with this Association pledging $39,425. 



The following facts concerning the campaign in this Association: 

Amounts raised in cash and pledges $25,163.12 

Number churches contributing, 52 out of 58. 

Number subscribing 1,294 

Total subscribed to the Chowan Crusade and the Centennial 

Campaign $64,531.12 

The memorial gifts are as follows: 

Dr. Wayland Mitchell, Lewiston $1,500 

T. N. Peele, Lewiston 1,000 

Mrs. C. W. Mitchell, Sr., Aulander 1,000 

Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Mitchell, Jr., Aulander 500 

J. T. Bolton, Rich Square 500 

J. E. Daniel, Pleasant Hill 500 

Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Daniel, Pleasant Hill 500 



It is worthy of mention that every member of the faculty of Chowan 
College and several students pledged to this campaign. 

The closing of the intensive effort the middle of February was the close 
of only the first stage of the campaign. The campaign will really close 
November, 1930, with the One Hundredth Anniversary of our North Caro- 
lina Baptist State Convention. 

In concluding this report grateful acknowledgment for the success 
of the campaign is made to Dr. Maddry for the help from his office, to the 
pastors of the Association, and President Edwards, to Mrs. M. A. Huggins, 
associate director, to the district and church directors and associate di- 
rectors, to Miss Bessie Tayloe, who helped us with the office work. Special 
mention; should' be made of the great effort of the W. M. S. of the As- 
sociation. 

Appreciation is hereby expressed to the Farmers- Atlantic Bank of 
Ahoskie for the free use of their directors' room with lights furnished. 

We give below the list of churches with the amounts pledged and the 
amounts paid up to October, 1928, as reported from Dr. Maddry's office. 

Respectfully submitted, 

OSCAR CREECH, Director.

31. Historian read his report, which was adopted as 
follows: 

HISTORICAL REPORT 

We wish to record, in the beginning of this report, our profound grati- 
tude to our Heavenly Father for the blessings vouchsafed to us in this 
good year, 1928. 

While storms and floods have swept over vast areas of our country, 
resulting in the loss of multiplied millions of dollars in property and thou- 
sands of lives; leaving homeless tens of thousands of families; we have 
escaped any and all such distresses and our people are coming to the close 
of the year in about as good shape as usual. There is not a full crop of 
cotton, but prices are more encouraging than last year; tobacco is bring- 
ing satisfactory prices and there is a splendid crop of peanuts. Consider- 
ing everything, our people have much for which to be profoundly thankful, 
and which should impell us to render unto God the portion of goods which 
rightly belong to Him. 

As compared with last year we note a falling off in Sunday School en- 
rollment and also in B. Y. P. U. enrollment. We have in round numbers 
5,000 fewer enrolled in our Sunday Schools than we have members of the 
churches. This fact, no doubt, accounts for the small number of standard 
Sunday Schools within our bounds — only eight in number. 

We have enrolled in our B. Y. P. U.s 2,000 fewer members than we had 
last year. This falling off is due to a waning interest on the part of the 
Intermediate and Senior Departments. The Juniors are holding their own 
and most of the Standard Unions are of the Junior age. Our contributions 
for the year show a small increase over last year. 

We rejoice to note the improvement of home equipment. Rich Square 
has put a new roof on their house of worship and painted it outside and 
inside at a cost of $850.00. Menola has repainted their building at a cost 
of $400.00. Buckhorne has painted their building on the outside at a cost 
of $150.00. The new building at Galatia, where Bro. D. Cale has been 
pastor for 36 years, was recently built at a cost of $8,000.00, all of which 
has been paid, except $2,000.00 which amount is to be paid off at an 
early date. 

Since last Association, Severn has reduced their debt $3,000.00, leaving 
only $3,000.00 balance. Capehart has perhaps the best wood building in 
the Association. They will remove the last of their debt and dedicate their 
splendid Sunday School plant on the second Sunday in November. Oak 
Grove is getting ready for an early start on remodeling their building at 
a cost of approximately $3,500.00 Winton has re-covered their building 
at a cost of $500.00. Potecasi has their new brick veneer building en- 
closed. They have already spent about $9,000.00 on it and it will take 
as much more to complete it. It will be a beautiful and convenient build- 
ing when finished. 

Ahoskie is building the most commodious and expensive house of wor- 
ship ever undertaken within the bounds of this Association. The building 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



23 



is already enclosed at an outlay so far of $34,000.00. It is the purpose of 
Pastor Creech and his plucky people to finish the Sunday school building 
and basement as early as possible, move in, and complete the great au- 
ditorium at some later time. 

Since our last meeting several pastoral changes have taken place. Bro. 
J. P. Essex, after a faithful ministry of seven years, resigned the Jackson 
field and moved to Parksley, Va. Bro. N. H. Shepherd resigned Ashley's 
Grove, St. John's and Sandy Run and moved to Keller, Va. Ashley's Grove 
has called Bro. L. E. Dailey; St. John's has called Bro. J. L. Powers, and 
Sandy Run has called Bro. Carl E. Gaddy. Jackson, Mt. Carmel and Roa- 
noke have no pastor as yet. 

C. M. Billings resigned at Potecasi and Bro. Von Miller was called. Bro. 
Poole resigned at Askewville, and Dr. C. C. Cox was called to that church. 

At this point we record with keen regret, kin to a sorrow, that, after 
five years of faithful and fruitful service, Bro. Alonzo Finch has felt im- 
pelled to resign the field composed of Ross, Capehart, Green's Cross Roads 
and River Side. Bro Finch is one of the Lord's anointed, and all pray 
God's blessings upon him and his noble family. Bro. Bryant, so well known 
and loved in this Association, has accepted that field and will enter upon 
his duties January 1, 1929. 

After doing a monumental work at Aulander, extending over a period 
of five years, during which time their present magnificent house of worship 
was built at a cost of more than $50,000.00, Bro. J. Fred Stimson relin- 
quished the work and Bro. Lonnie Sasser was called and has taken charge 
with a strong hand, and the work has started off under his guidance with 
great satisfaction to both pastor and church. 

Gracious meetings have been conducted in practically all the churches 
and many have been received both by way of restoration and baptism. 

The death list this year is large, but since their names will appear else- 
where in the minutes, I need not record them here, except to note that 
among the many who have past from us we find the names of several faith- 
ful deacons: Deacon J. H. S. Britt, of Roberts Chapel, much beloved by 
his pastor and church; Deacon J. L. Story, Mount Tabor; Deacon R. T. 
Barnes, of Buckhorn, a fine Christian gentleman; Deacon W. A. Perry, of 
Bethlehem, a faithful servant of God, and probably others whose names 
we failed to get. This whole section was shocked on account of the sud- 
den and untimely death of young Dr. Edward Boone, member of Rich 
Square Church. He was one of the very finest Christian characters pro- 
duced in Northampton County and was greatly loved by all who knew him. 

On December 19, 1927, after long and patient suffering, Sister D. P. 
Harris went to her reward, leaving behind a good report of a life spent in 
fruitful and faithful service. 

C. M. BILLINGS. 
HISTORY OF ASHLEY'S GROVE CHURCH 

Ashley's Grove Church was founded in 1909, with a membership of 
about 70 in numerical strength. During these 19 years the church has made 
rapid gains, numbering now 268 members. 

The church has had five pastors in all. Rev. D. Cale was the first, who 
has been followed by Rev. J. P. Bennett, Rev. H. G. Bryant, Rev. N. H. 
Shepherd and Rev. L. E. Dailey. The last named is the present pastor. 

The church today is in a very prosperous condition and bids fair to 
have a great future. For some time they have been maintaining a Senior,

MINUTES OF THE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 
WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



Meherrin Church, Murfreesboro, July 25, 1923 



On July 25th the thirty-fourth annual Missionary Union 
of the West Chowan Association met at Meherrin Church. 
Miss Una White, associational superintendent, presiding. 

Following the opening hymn, "Publish Glad Tidings/' Mrs. 
E. B. Vaughan led the devotional, using Den. 6-6:9, Den. 
11-18:21 as a scripture lesson. Her lesson showed the need 
of more religious training in the home. Mrs. R. B. Lineberry 
led in prayer. Miss Nancy Parker pled for old-fashioned home 
training through a most impressive song. 

Mrs. R. H. Underwood most hospitably welcomed the 
Union, and Mrs. L. A. Perry, of Colerain, responded in behalf 
of the Union. 

A most earnest prayer was offered by Mrs. R. L. Bolton for 
the protection and care of our beloved missionary, Miss Pearl 
Johnson. 

The chair then recognized the following visitors: Mrs. W. 
N. Jones, Raleigh, State W. M. U. president; Miss Ida Patter- 
son, Shanghai, China, missionary; the new pastors of the As- 
sociation, and their wives. 

The report of officers followed. Miss Una White, superin- 
tendent, gave a report of outstanding items. An increase in 
subscriptions to all church literature; a total of 1,018 subscrip- 
tions. 

Republican leading in Home and Foreign Field 43 

Meherrin and Seaboard leading in Royal Service 18 

Ahoskie and Conway leading in Biblical Recorder 50 

The enlistment showed a great increase. The report plead 
for Tithers, which could be brought about only by prayerful 
study of stewardship and sacrificial love gifts. The aim for 
the year is 500 Tithers. 

The past year's financial aim was $16,000, while the total 
paid in was $13,462.18.

The report closed with a plea to go forward with the watchword of the 
year: Enlarge — Spare Not — Lengthen — Strenghten — and pray that this 
may help to meet the Ruby Anniversary Aim in the name of the Master. 
Report adopted. 

Due to the absence of Mrs. W. R. Burrell, Young People's leader, her 
report of splendid work was given by Miss White. Report adopted. 

Mrs. W. D. Boone, Junior superintendent, gave an unusually good 
report. Her work showed an increase in number of organizations and in 
the standard of work, having Jackson, Seaboard and Colerain Sunbeams 
on the A-l Standard, and Aulander and Severn R. A. Bands on A-l Stand- 
ard. She begged for more live consecrated leaders and that reports be 
sent at proper time. Report adopted. 

The report of Secretary and Treasurer was postponed until afternoon. 

The Mission Study Superintendent being unable to attend, had her 
report read. She suggested as part of each society's program to study a 
Foreign Mission Book in January and a Home Mission book in March. 
She urged a more consecrated fostering of Junior Mission study, and sug- 
gested Mission study for men. By the great emphasis she has placed on 
Mission study, the Union has gone forward in this important phase of the 
work, for as her report states, Mission zeal can only be changed by con- 
tinuous prayerful Mission study. Report adopted. 

Personal Service report by Mrs. G. T. Underwood, superintendent, 
brought us nearer to a realization of this great organized activity: The 
V/. M. S. and even the Junior organizations carrying out a program which 
was committed to all Christians at all times. She reported that many were 
engaging in this Christian service who did not report. Report adopted. 



Mrs. J. I. Kendrick, of Bertie, gave a report showing that Bertie was 
actively in each activity of the Mission work. Reported $200 given for two 



STATISTICAL REPORT 



REPORT OF COUNTY PRESIDENTS 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION

Chowan scholarships, $60 given for Bible woman. Four county meetings 
were conducted and largely attended. 

Mrs. E. C. Boone, of Northampton reported the fostering of a circulat- 
ing library, one Chowan scholarship, one training school scholarship, five 
W. M. S. on Standard of Excellence, four meetings conducted for the year. 

Mrs. R. B. Lineberry's report for Hertford County showed four in- 
spirational meetings held, using uniform programs planned by the three 
county presidents. Each meeting was an inspiration to the group attending. 

The congregation sang, "Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone?" Miss Ida 
Patterson, of Shanghai, China, then delighted and informed the congrega- 
tion with a soul stirring address on "Importance of Christian Education in 
China." She stated if one could only realize the difficulty in securing the 
Chinese's interest, one could realize that Personal Service was with faith 
and prayer, the essentials of even slow success. She told of many of her 
methods of conducting the school and trying to convert Chinese students 
by personal contact, through daily touch in athletic activities. She used 
the Bible as a text book, proving that each subject necessary for them 
could be taught in the Bible, except Math. She gave many striking in- 
stances of personal contact and inspired the congregation with earnest- 
ness and happiness over her work. 

Roll was called and recorded as follows: 

Number of Missionary Societies represented, 41; number Y. W. A. 
Auxiliaries represented, 7; number G. A. Bands represented, 4; number 
of R. A. Bands represented, 6; number of Sunbeam Bands represented, 14.

Mr. Townsend cordially invited the congregation to remain seated in 
the church due to rain, and said dinner would be served to each one. The 
congregation was dismissed by Mr. Price. 



AFTERNOON SESSION 

The afternoon session opened by singing "Come Thou Almighty King." 
Miss Margaret Lassiter, of Rich Square, conducted the devotional, basing 
her talk on Romans 6:12, showing the necessity and opportunity for each 
of us to be more Missionary each day. A most interesting and instructive 
Young People's conference was then conducted by Miss Leona Harris. 
She used the method of asking and answering questions. She informed 
many societies on questions that had not been clear. Mrs. J. T. Rhodes, 
of Winton, delighted all with a vocal solo. 

Mrs. W. N. Jones, of Raleigh, our beloved State president, brought a 
message and greetings from the World Alliance, of Toronto, she having 
just returned from there. She said she was benefited and impressed not 
only by the great program, but first by the law enforcement of the city 
and the strict Sabbath observance, second class distinction and third the 
bigness of the great mass of people from all the world there with one 
purpose of heart. She then delivered a message on the "Ruby Anniver- 
sary." She said the Ruby Anniversary is one of the ways to hasten the 
winning of souls. She explained the three fold aim of the anniversary: 
Forty per cent increase in finances, 40,000 new members and the carrying 
out of the year's motto, "Enlarge, Spare Not, Lenghten, and Strenghten."

Constitution 



Name 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the North Carolina West 
Chowan Baptist Association. 

Membership 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches 
connected with this body, and all ordained ministers who are members or 
pastors of said churches, together with the officers of this Association, and 
chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of one hundred mem- 
bers and under shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each additional 
one hundred members, an additional messenger; provided, that no church 
shall have more than four messengers. 

Objects 

Article 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend measures for 
increasing the harmony, the intelligence and the spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources 
and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom on the earth. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the 
sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor 
legislative council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches and 
recommend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but can not bind 
them in any way. Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelli- 
gence of the body, it may justly claim for itself, for its objects and for its 
recommendation the very highest consideration and regard. 

Article 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any church 
that becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice, or that fails 
to represent itself, either by messenger or letter, more than two successive 
sessions, without sufficient reasons, or that treats with contempt its objects 
and requirements, or upon application of a church for dismission. 

Rights of Churches 

Article 6. Each individual church shall hold and exercise all the func- 
tions of an independent church of Jesus Christ. As constituent members 
of this Association, the churches shall have right to advise, when desired, in 
case of difficulty, and suggest plans of usefulness to be adopted. It shall 
be the undisputed privilege of any church to withdraw its membership from 
this Association whenever it shall so elect. 

Duties of Churches 

Article 7. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as mes- 
sengers, as far as practicable, their most capable members, to require their 
attendance, and to send by them a contribution to the Association fund to 
pay for printing the Minutes and other necessary expenses. 

Article 8. It shall be the duty of each church to send an annual letter 
to the Association, giving: (1) locality; (2) names of its pastor and clerk 
and their respective post offices; (3) the Sabbaths of regular service; (4) 
the church statistics, including the number baptized, received by letter, 
restored, dismissed, deceased, expelled and aggregate membership, male 
and female; (5) Sabbath School statistics; (6) amount contributed to 
benevolent objects and the Association fund; (7) names of messengers and 
alternates; (8) any other information deemed of special importance. 



Organization 

Article 9. The officers of this Association shall be a Moderator, Vice- 
Moderator, Clerk, Treasurer and Historian, who shall be elected at each 
annual session, from the members of the Association, and shall continue in 
office until the next annual election, which election shall be the next order 
of business after the enrollment of messengers. As soon as the new 
officers shall have taken their seats, the body shall be declared organized 
and prepared for business. 

Article 10. In order to conserve time and not interfere with the main 
work of the body, this Association will not consider "any routine or mis- 
cellaneous business except at the close of the discussion of each general 
topic. 

Duties of Officers 

Article 11. It shall be the duty of the Moderator to open the meetings 
punctually at time appointed; to enforce the rules; to enforce order, and 
to exercise all the prerogatives of a presiding officer, according to the 
principles of parliamentary usage. 

Article 12. It shall be the duty of the Vice-Moderator to discharge 
the duties of the Moderator in his absence. 

Article 13. It shall be the duty of the Clerk to keep a faithful record 
of the proceedings of the body, and superintend the printing and dis- 
tribution of same, and to keep on file the printed Minutes and other im- 
portant documents belonging to the body. He may appoint an assistant 
when necessary. The Clerk shall receive for his services fifty dollars out 
of the Minute Fund. 

Article 14. It shall be the duty of the Treasurer to receive and dis- 
burse the money contributed to the Minute Fund, as directed by the body,

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

Some Baptists of Boston and other sections of the North from the be- 
ginning _ of the 19th century took a deep interest in the missionary work 
of William Gary, the English missionary, and contributed liberally to its 
support. The conversion to Baptist views of Adoniram Judson and Luther 
Rice in 1812 marks an epoch in American Baptist history. Judson appeal- 



10 



FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL SESSION 



ed to his American brethren to support him in his missionary work among 
the heathen. So in January, 1813, there was formed in Boston "The Bap- 
tist Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in India and Other Foreign 
Parts." Other societies in the Eastern, Middle and Southern States speedily 
followed. (The North Carolina Convention was organized in 1830). 

The desirability of a national organization soon became manifest and in 
May, 1814, thirty-three delegates representing eleven States met in Phila- 
delphia and organized the "General Missionary Convention of the Baptist 
Denomination in the U. S. of America for Foreign Missions." 

This brief history shows that Baptists of America have been doing Foreign 
Mission work a little more than a century. Largely these have been years 
of planting. Churches, Christian schools, and hospitals have been planted 
here and there throughout our mission fields. The natives are rallying in a 
worthy way to the support of all these. Under the providence of the Lord 
it looks as if Southern Baptists in their Foreign Mission work stand in the 
beginning of a great harvest. 

In all quarters of the earth there are arising most challenging situations. 
Of all our mission fields it can be said that the harvest is ripe but the labor- 
ers are few. Never in all history have such hosts of men been so susceptible 
to new impressions. 

Surely the harvest is as important as the planting. It is not time for 
interest to wane and contributions to fall off. The greatest discouragement 
in our Foreign work today is the lack of support here in the homeland. In 
this Association last year the average amount per member to all missions, 
benevolences and education was only $3.45 and of this amount 47 cents 
went to Foreign Missions. (We spent $7.72 per member for home pur- 
poses). Southern Baptists have every encouragement necessary for doing 
Foreign Mission work. Therefore, let us lay aside every weight that doth 
beset us and run with patience the race of taking the good news and glad 
tidings of Jesus and His love to all the peoples of the earth. 

Respectfully submitted, 
OSCAR CREECH, Chairman Mission Committee. 
Oct. 29, 1929. 

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

The great and deplorable misfortune which befell the Home Board and 
its work about one year ago is too well known among our people to need 
discussion in this report. It is sufficient to say that Southern Baptists will 
not allow the treachery of one man to cause them to default in their stew- 
artship or to lessen their interest in the Kingdom of Christ, either in their 
own homeland or the regions beyond. 

While the year just passed has recorded the greatest calamity that ever 
befell the Home Mission Board or any other of our Baptist agencies, it has 
also recorded the greatest and most generous gift ever made to the Home- 
Mission Board or to any other Southern Baptist Mission enterprise. 

Mrs. George W. Bottoms, of Texarkana, Ark., adding to a gift of $100,- 
000 made by her and Mr. Bottoms in his lifetime, has just rounded out a 
gift which at the lowest estimate will amount to one-half million dollars 
for the erection and maintenance of our school in Havana, Cuba. More and 
more, Havana will be both a great commercial, intellectual and religious 
capital of Latin America, and this school will stand as a great and shining 
light whose rays will reach everyone of the Latin American people and will 
be the means of winning multiplied thousands to the- saving knowledge of 
the grace of God. 

The response of our people made on Baptist Honor Day on which was 
contributed about $450,000 for the relief of the Board enabled the Board 
to close a remarkable good and successful year and to face the future witk 
enlarging prospects and hopes. 

At the session of the Southern Baptist Convention, at Memphis, Tenn., 
the Board was constituted of an almost entirely new personnel. This was 
not done through a lack of confidence in the brethren who have served on. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



11 



the Board for many years, but at their request. The new Board recently 
elected as Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Rev. J. B. Lawrence, D. D., of 
Kansas City, Missouri. Dr. Lawrence has accepted and entered upon the 
duties of his office. The several departments of the work are under the 
supervision of the following superintendents: Department of Churchy Ex- 
tension, Dr. A. J. Barton; Department of Direct and Independent Missions, 
Dr. J. W. Beagle; Department of Mountain Schools and Missions, Dr. J. W. 
C'Hara; Cuban Work, Dr. M. N. McCall. 

We do not burden this report with figures or statistics. As just said, the 
past convention year, in spite of all difficulties, has been a good year, with 
large achievements and with brightening outlook for the work of the Lord. 
We therefore as your committee recommend that as an Association we 
pledge to the Home Mission Board and its several great enterprises our 
continued united and hearty united and hearty support. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. M. VON MILLER, for the Committee. 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

During the past century of their organized life North Carolina Baptists 
have wrought well and the smile of God's approval has been upon them. 
They have grown from a weak struggling band of a few thousand to nearly 
400,000; they have gone from extreme poverty to comparative riches; and 
from almost no facilities for training their leadership to seven colleges in 
this State and through Southwide institutions. 

And yet our task of making North Carolina great Baptist Commonwealth 
is far from being complete. Reliable statistics reveal the fact that more 
than one-half of all the people in North Carolina are not yet even nominal 
Christians. In other words, there are considerable more than a million 
people in this good State who do not claim Jesus Christ as Saviour and 
Lord and King. 

Since about 48 members out of every 100 in this State are Baptists, that 
fact places a tremendous responsibility on us to be faithful and diligent in 
evangelizing this great multitude that is looking to us for religious in- 
fluence and guidance. 

Our General Board is seeking to solve the mission problem in North Caro- 
lina through its 83 missionary pastors that are serving 165 churches, many 
of which could not have adequate pastoral service but for the timely aid 
of our board. Approximately _ $32,000 of the $89,000 budget for State 
Mission was appropriated to this phase of the work this year. 

The board is still further attacking its mission problem in this State 
through its evangelistic staff of three men; through its Sunday School De- 
partment with three regular field workers, three associated workers and 
numerous volunteer workers in Associational Enlargement Campaigns; 
though its B. Y. P. U. Department with four regular field workers, three 
associational workers and volunteer workers in Associational Campaigns; 
through the Woman's Missionary Union Department with ten regular work- 
ers in the field and other volunteer helpers; and through the Preachers' 
School, work among students in our collegese, etc. 

Recommendations 

L That each church in this Association put forth its best effort to win 
to Christ all the possibilities within its reach, and train its membership for 
the most effective service possible, utilizing such agencies of our General 
Board as may be necessary and available. 

2. That the stronger churches in the Association helps the weaker ones 
to get on their feet, acting as a kind of big brother, giving counsel and 
leadership, and if necessary, more substantial help. We recommend that 
our Executive Committee deal with this matter in an organized way. 

3, That in the selection of the Executive Committee of this Association 
the different groups of our organizations, such as the Sunday School, W. M. 



12 



FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL SESSION 



U. and B. Y. P. U. be represented, and that the various sections of the 
Association be represented. 

4. That our churches co-operate with our General Board, in solving our 
great mission problem at home and abroad, that they put on a thorough 
every-member canvass in November or December, that all our members be 
asked to contribute regularly, according to the Bible plan, to the co-opera- 
tive program, and that our church treasurers be urged to forward promptly, 
at least one a month, such funds to Walters Durham, treasurer, Raleigh, 
North Carolina. 

5. That we endorse the effort of the General Board in putting on to 
raise $25,000 in October through our Sunday Schools with which to wipe 
out the debt of State Missions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. M. VON MILLER, Committee. 

WOMAN'S WORK 

Woman's Missionary Union has its work so organized that it embraces 
all the women and children of our churches. The object of each organiza- 
tion is to develop its members along four lines. Through the regular pro- 
grams and mission study classes we "Look out on the fields." Seeing these 
fields "white unto harvest" inspires us to follow our Lord's injunction, 
"Pray ye the Lord of the harvest that He thrust out laborers." As we 
pray, we strive to show our faith by our works and, through personal serv- 
ice and our gifts, to "Go and make disciples of all nations,, remembering 
"Freely ye have received, freely give." 

The W. M. U. of West Chowan Association consists of three divisions — 
according to county lines — each of which has held its quarterly meetings 
during the year. These meetings were well attended and proved a great 
inspiration. The midsummer meeting in each division was a Young Peoples' 
Rally. In addition to this a Young Peoples' Camp was held at Chowan 
College in July. This was our first Association camp and proved most suc- 
cessful. We have reporting this year W. M. S., 56; Y. W. A. and G. A., 43; 
R. A., 22; Sunbeam Bands, 39. Total gifts from all organizations, $15,- 
628.51. Mission Study Classes, 80, with awards as follows: Seals, 314; 
Record Cards, 123; Certificates, 113; Official Seals, 3. 

In addition to these regular lines of work the county divisions of the 
W. M. U. are supporting Miss Pearle Johnson, a missionary in China, and 
give four scholarships in Chowan College to four worthy girls. One county 
gives one scholarship in the W. M. U. Training School and has a circulating 
mission library, while another pays the salary of a Bible Woman in China, 
and the other holds regular program meetings each month at the County 
Home. 

The one object of all these activities is that we may increase in efficiency 
in "Holding forth the Word of Life" as we are "Laborers together with 
God." 

Respectfully submitted, 
MRS. J. I. KENDRICK. 

REPORT ON EDUCATION 

There are seven schools and colleges owned and controlled by the Bap- 
tist State Convention of North Carolina. We are assisting each of these 
schools as far as possible with the funds available in the payment of their 
running expenses and teachers' salaries. Some of these schools could not 
exist even for a limited time without the aid from the State Convention in 
supplementing the salaries of their teachers. Under this department we 
are assisting 126 young men and young women who are going to be preach- 
ers and missionaries, in securing their education. 

We make grateful asknowledgement to God for his blessings on our seven 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



13 



schools in the past. We look forward hopefully to a continuation of His 
blessings on our denominational schools. They have been and are of in- 
estimable value to the life and growth of our churches. Our finest recruits 
in all lines of Christian activities come to us from these schools. Our 
schools are composed of three senior colleges, Wake Forest, Meredith, Cho- 
wan; three junior colleges, Mars Hill, Campbell, Wingate and Boiling 
Springs High School. In the senior colleges there were in attendance last 
school year 1,447. In the junior colleges there were in attendance 1,252. 
In high schools 824. We think our churches will look to these schools for 
leadership in all departments of activity in the future as they have in the 
past. If we fail to maintain our schools the churches will eventually die 
for the lack of trained, consecrated leadership. 

We simply mention our Southwide institutions: Southern Baptist Theo- 
logical Seminary, Louisville, Ky. ; Woman's Missionary Union Training 
School, at Louisbille, Ky. ; Southwestern Theological Seminary, Seminary 
Hill, Texas; Baptist Bible Institute, New Orleans, La. 

We sincerely recommend that our people rally to the support of our 
schools as faithfully as our Fathers did in establishing them. They have 
meant so much to us, and now to let them fail means that the churches will 
fail for the lack of competent leadership.

MINISTERIAL RELIEF AND ANNUITIES 

The cause of Ministerial Relief is being promoted by the Relief and An- 
nuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, Dallas, Texas. Dr. Thomas 
J. Watts is the Executive Secretary. 

The Relief and Annuity Board is the agency of the Convention through 
which the contributions of the churches are distributed to approximately 1.- 
450 ministers, and widows and orphans of ministers. 

During the past year relief benefits were paid to 1,333 persons, including 
150 orphan children who were indirectly aided, and Annuity benefits were 
paid to 110 ministers, widows and orphans. The current contributions of 
the churches were supplemented from the interest earnings on the Board's 
invested funds, and the total amount paid to beneficiaries was $162,705.06. 
This was the largest sum ever paid in any year by several thousands of 
dollars. 

We rejoice in the great success that has already come to the Relief and 
Annuity Board, yet the payment of one million, three hundred thousand 
dollars in benefits and the growth in its resources from one hundred and 
six thousand dollars and sixty cents in 1919, to three million and twenty- 
eight thousand dollars in 1929, is only illustrative of what is possible for 
it to achieve, if only the Reserve Annuity Plan is pressed to its logical con- 
clusion. Let it be remembered that the accumulations of the Board are in 
the nature of the case to be found on the Annuity side of its work, since 
the earnings of the Relief Fund have to be used month by month in paying 
the beneficiaries. Increased endowment is being diligently sought for both 
the Relief and the Annuity Funds, and that with some measure of success. 
The resources of the Board must be much larger if our ministers and their 
families are to be more adequately cared for. 

God says, "The laborer is worthy of his hire." So considerate was He in 
planning that even the beasts of burden should have a square deal in the 
world that in establishing the economic order for the children of Israel 
in the long ago He ordered that the humble ox should not be muzzled as he 
treaded out the corn, deeming that the ox also was worthy of his hire. Com- 
bining this attitude of God the Father with the statements of Jesus Christ 
to the effect that man is of far more value than animals, birds and flowers 
in which the Father is so vitally interested, can we not safely conclude 
that if God should speak directly to Southern Baptists today He would tell 
them to make far more adequate provision for the care of their worn-out 



14 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL SESSION 

and disabled ministers and missionaries, with their widows and dependent 
children? 

Respectfully submitted, 
L. SASSER. 



REPORT OF THE ORPHANAGE 

In memory of its founder, Bro. J. H. Mills, the name of the institution 
has been changed to the Mills Home. 

The most recent statement in our possession gave the number of chil- 
dren in the home at Thomasville as 497 and in the Kennedy Home 135. 
In addition to these 273 are being cared for through the Mother's Aid 
plan making a total of 905 children cared for by the Home. 

In the forty-four years of the existence of our Orphanage, around 2,700 
have been enrolled there with probably as many more turned away for lack 
of room and money. 

The current receipts for last year, from the Sunday Schools and other 
organizations, amounted to $169,457. The total income was $212,787. 

The total value of the plant, including grounds, buildings and equip- 
ment amounts to the sum of $1,024,478.78. 

The invested endowment is $295,108.32. 

The cost of maintaining 632 children at Thomasville and Kennedy Home 
is $25.12 per month for each child. This includes all expenses of main- 
tenance — administrative, food, clothing, laundry and shoes, household ex- 
penses, health, education, repairs, etc. 

There was recently completed a beautiful and substantial new residence 
for the general manager. This is the gift of Mrs. H. S. Stokes, of Win- 
ston-Salem, in memory of her distinguished and greatly beloved father, 
Dr. Henry A. Brown, who was pastor of the First Baptist Church of that 
city for more than forty years. 

As it is well known, the Orphanage is maintained, for the most part 
by once a month offerings from the Sunday Schools and the annual Thanks- 
giving offering. Let us do our best to grow a little in the grace of giving 
on these occasions when our offerings are made. 

Let every Sunday School have a goodly number of Charity and Children 
for free distribution. Eternity alone can reveal the blessings the paper 
has been in keeping the hearts of our people warm for the Orphanage. 
Besides it turned into the treasury last year the sum of $9,261.84. 1930 
will be a great year for North Carolina Baptists. We expect to celebrate 
the 100th anniversary of our Convention's history. Would it not be well 
for us to remember, also, that Bro. Kesler will have been at the Orphan- 
age one-fourth of that time. Would it not be fitting to start something 
that would fix in the minds of our people the blessings of God on our great 
Orphanage during the quarter of a century Bro. Kesler has so faithfully 
and successfully met the responsibilities of the trust committed to him. 

REPORT FOR HOSPITAL 

The growing demands and the enlarged service rendered by our Hospital 
in Winston-Salem have demonstrated the need of healing in the Christian 
program. Literally thousands have gone from every part of the State 
seeking deliverance from the bondage of deformity and disease and they 
have been received into the open hearts of our home for the sick. Hun- 
dreds of these could never have had proper hospital care had they not gone 
to our hospital, because they had no money to pay for this service. But 
the hospital took them in, and scores of our boys and girls who were de- 
formed and destined to be invalids for life were made well and strong. 
Many fathers and mothers now happily care for the family around the 
fireside who would have been in their graves had the hospital not heard 
their cry and took them in. Only eternity will reveal the blessed results. 
Suffice it to say that in the six years of Christian ministry there have been 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



15 



12,000 patients admitted to our institution. At least five thousand of 
these have been charity or part pay patients. 

The number of charity patients increases each year. Last year we 
cared for 345 free and 1,053 part pay patients,, making a grand total of 
1,380 who received help from our institution. Of this number 16 died and 
1,364 returned home cured or improved. Could there be a more wonder- 
ful proof of the approval of the great Physician than this record. If hu- 
man suffering constitutes a call for Christian service; if a sick moneyless 
brother needs our sympathy and help; if human life is worth saving at all; 
then our Hospital which saves thousands is a part of the program of our 
Lord and is worthy of our prayers and support. 

This year has brought an even greater demand than ever before for free 
service. Not less than 1,500 will call on us during the year. If we help 
all of these poor suffering Baptists, we will have to spend at least $50,000. 
Indications now are that we will not have more than $15,000 from Moth- 
er's Day offering and we will get about $10,000 from the Duke Fund. 
The problem is how shall we raise the other $25,000 necessary to care 
for these whom the churches send? The hospital cannot turn them away 
to die. Our churches would never stand for this. The institution would 
be untrue to its mission and the great Physician if it did. But how can 
we take them if the churches fail to furnish the funds? Our churches are 
sending more patients and giving less money each year. Surely you must see 
that this course will soon wreck the purpose of the hospital and destroy all 
possibilities of helping any of the needy. 

Many of the churches in this association never give a cent! on Mother's 
Day to help in this work, and yet that is the only money the denomination 
gives to help care for the sick. The four per cent from' the Cooperative 
program goes to pay the bonds issued to pay the debt incurred in the 
building of the plants. 

The Nurses Home has been built and paid for. The cost of this fine build- 
ing and equipment was $47,500. The good women of the state paid one 
half of this and the hospital took care of the rest by means of personal 
gifts solicited from friends, $5,000 donated by the Duke Foundation, and 
loans from the operating account. No church was asked to give a cent 
to this splendid addition to our equipment. 

In conclusion your Committee would urge that we use every possible 
means, to lay the Hospital on the hearts of our people. Plead with them 
to pray for its success, to contrubute to its charity work by a Mother's 
Day offering, and as far as possible influence those who are able to pay 
for their care to go to our own hospital that the funds they pa^ may help 
to care for the hospital and enlarge its opportunity for serving the hun- 
dreds who go without money or price. 

We would further recommend that this association appoint a represent- 
ative to promote the interest of our hospital among the churches and that 
the clerk be instructed to forward his name and address to Rev. G. T. 
Lumpkin, Winston-Salem, N. C. 



SOCIAL SERVICE 
I. Sabbath Observance II. Law Enforcement. 

Permit me to say that there seems to be a growing tendency toward 
laxity on the part of our people, both old and young, regarding "Sabbath 
Observance." Two things possibly contribute towards this growing evil, 
zi.: Good roads, and the easy made of transportation. The rural popula- 
tion migrate to the towns, cities and watering places; while the more dense- 
ly populated places flock to the country and the open fields, maring the 
beauty of the highways by their destruction of the scenery. 

I. It is very easy to point out the evil tendencies of our age, but quite 
difficult to offer a remedy that will cure these ills. But I am goin gto ven- 



16 



FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL SESSION 



ture to offer some suggestion that if followed willpossibly help to check this 
growing evil. 

1. Sabbath observance must be taught and practiced in the home. 
The old-time reverence for the Lord's Day is almost a thing of the past 

It has departed in some, sections, and is rapidly disappearing in this South 
Land of ours. 

2. It must be preached from the pulpit. The pastor can, if he will, 
impart to his people a conscience on "Sabbath Observance." We have 
been busy about many things, and have neglected to indoctrinate our 
people on this great principle. 

If "Sabbath Observance" was taught in the home, preached from the 
pulpit and practiced by those who call themselves Christians, it would not 
take long to teach our children to have more reverence for the Lord's 
day. "Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy." 

The second part of our subject deals with "Law Enforcement." 

I am a firm belu;ver in law enforcement, but experience and observa- 
tion has taught us that it is quite difficult to enforce a law when there is 
a lack of moral sentiment behind it. Therefore we need: 

1. A campaign of education. 

Like Sabbath observance, this training must begin in the home and 
reach out to the Sunday school, the public school and the pulpit. 

2. We need legislation. 

Since North Carolina seems to have no way to check Red Russia, it 
seems to me that we need some legislation along this line. The things 
that have happened in the Piedmont section this year seems to be proof 
sufficient on this point. 

3. A political reformation. 

No Christian citizen ought to cast his vote for any candidate whose 
record is unclean along the line of liquor and law enforcement. 

People are openly saying that the officers are not trying to enforce the 
whiskey law, and yet many of them continue to vote for the same old 
gang. 

People also say that most of the service stations sell liquor. I want to 
say that the closing of these stations on Sunday is in the hands of the 
county commissioners, but this law has not been enforced, certainly not 
in the bounds of the West Chowan Association. The closing of these sta- 
tions on Sunday would be one step toward law enforcement, and Sab- 
bath Observance." 

Your committee wishes to make the following reccommendations: 

1. That greater stress be placed on iSabbath observance and law en- 
forcement by pastors and Sunday school teachers. 

2. That we urge the voter that his duty is to vote only for such men 
as whose record is clean. 

3. That we observe, and teach others to respect the laws of our com- 
monwealth. 

E. C. ANDREWS, 
For the Committee.

follows : 

HISTORICAL REPORT. 

Many incidents and occurences of the year 1929 are similar to those of 
1928. In some sections of our country there have again occurred several 
storms, floods and other disasters on land and sea and in the air. Our 
people of the West Chowan Association have again escaped the wrath and 
sorrow of such occurrences as have fallen on some other sections and we 
record our grateful thanksgiving and praise to our gracious God for His 
protection and preservation. 

The heavy rains have greatly impaired some of the crops, and the boll 
weevil has destroyed 50 per cent of the cotton crop, according to the esti- 
mate of those who are in a position to know. It is the unanimous opinion 
of business men with whom your historian has talked, that the farmer 
cannotpossibly meet expenses for the year out of the present crop. 

Money has not been so scarce in this territory in seven years and the 
prediction is freely made that next year will be decidedly worse than this. 
But the work in our church has gone on about as usual, with a cheering 
ray of light beaming out here and there. The pastors report blessed re- 
vivals on their fields of labor. Unusually large attendance upon the pro- 
tracted meeting services are reported, and churches, where there were 
evangelistic opportunities have had gratifying results in the way of ad- 
ditions. 

Last April there was put on in this Association Sunday School Enlarge- 
ment campaign. Bro. Perry Morgan, our Sunday School secretary, came 
with a fine corps of experts who greatly stimulated and aroused some 
thirty^five or six of our churches in organizing, grading and building up 
the Sunday schools in members, efficiency and permantnt results. Great 
and we trust lasting good was done. 

We note that in the matter of material improvement, Ahoskie is still at 
work on their great building and hope to enter at least, the Sunday school 
section in the near future. 

Potecasi will soon be at work again on their building, plastering, put- 
ting up the overhead steel ceiling and otherwise equipping for early use. 
Potecasi has no great amount of wealth, but has a plucky band of work- 
ers, who will be a happy people indeed when they get into their new 
church building. 

The Sunday school campaign stirred up the brethren at Conway to such 
a pitch that they commenced a building campaign immediately, and have 
already completed one of eleven rooms to their church building. 

Oak Grove after much consideration decided to remodel their old 
building instead of building a new one. At an outlay of between $600 



20 



FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL SESSION 



and $700 the work has been completed and a better spirit prevails in the 
church than for some time. 

Since our last report Dr. C. C. Cox has resigned at Cashie (Windsor). 
Bro. Carl Grady has resigned Sandy Run (Roxobel), and Bro. Dailey at 
Powellsville, Bethlehem and Center Grove. All three of these brethren 
are located in Virginia. 

Bro. W. R. Stevens has taken up the pastorate at Mars Hill, and Bro. K. 
E. Bryant that of the Powellsville field.These brethren have taken hold of 
their work with great enthusiasm and gratifying results are already in 
evidence. 

We notice with sorrow that our Aulander church has been bereft by the 
loss of ten members by death during the year, among them being Brother 
A. iF. Rice, treasurer of the church and Deacon E. L. Rice, a good and 
faithful servant of the Lord. 

In the homegoing of sister W. C. Askew not only has Lewiston lost a 
good woman, but the whole Association loses a sympathetic and useful 
member. In her will she bequeathed $5,000 to Chowan College. 

Republican sustained a great loss in the death of Deacon J. P. Bazemore. 

In the passing of Rev. R. T. White, member of Gonway, the Associa- 
tion loses a loyal member. Brother White loved his church and the 
brethren.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION, WEST CHOWAN 



HISTORY OF W. M. U. 

On this occasion, the 200th anniversary of this church, which was the 
beginning of organized Baptist work in this section, known later as the 
Chowan Association and still later as West Chowan, it is fitting that we 
should take a backward look and reveal the experiences and blessings that 
have been ours in helping to advance the Kingdom of God through our 
W. M. U. work. The story of our growth and work is not only interest- 
ing in missionary endeavor but it will bring encouragement to all to see 
our growth, the evidence of His guidance from the beginning. 

In North Carolina missionary societies existed in the early part of the 
19th century; Edenton, Spring Hill, Fayetteville and Raleigh churches had 
societies in 1818 but there was no organized work until 1877 when Mrs. 
J. M. Heck, of Raleigh, was made President of a Woman's Ceneral Com- 
mittee. That fall a resolution was offered commending the work and 
asking the report to be made to the State Convention. This brought 
forth a heated discussion among the preachers. Decided opposition was 
manifested to woman's work. Lack of sympathy and support caused the 
committee to disband. In 1886 Dr. Whitefield, of New Bern, went to 
Raleigh to discuss organizing mission work for women. A few weeks 
later in the Biblical Recorder office a Womans Central Committee was 
formed, composed of 15 ladies, electing Miss Fannie E. S. Heck President, 
which place she held with great efficiency and grace until ill health forced 
her to resign in 1909. Miss Sallie Bailey, later Mrs. W. N. Jones, was 
made Secretary which place she held until she took up Miss Heck's work 
as State President. She continues until present to bless the Union with 
her leadership. 

These meetings were held in the Recorder's office and the State Mission 
Board paid for printing and postage. On investigation 10 Societies were 
found active, giving $500 the previous year. Seventy-five Societies were 
organized the first year of the functioning of the central committee, giv- 
ing $1000. There was practically no information for the Societies, so 
Miss Heck published "The Missionary Talk", mailing this and quarterly 
reports from her home. In 1888 Miss Heck attended the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention at Richmond, and wanted the Societies of North Carolina 
to join the Woman's Auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention, but 
the men leaders} were opposed and they joined in 1891. The first W. M. 
U. State Convention of North Carolina, met in Goldsboro in 1891. 

In 1894 Associational Vice Presidents were appointed throughout North 
Carolina to organize and foster Societies in their respective Associations. 
Here our organized work began. Miss Grace R. Brown was appointed 
Vice President of West Chowan W. M. U. and a meeting was called against 
the wishes of the' men at Ahoskie with 4 W. M. S. and 2 Sunbeam Bands 
attending. Mrs. Addie Williams had previously called a meeting of the 
Societies but no organization was founded. Miss Brown served 3 years, 
married and left the Association. Miss Anna Erkerson, was elected, serv- 
ing until her death 3 years later. Minutes cannot be traced for a period 
of years causing disconnected history. Miss Blanche Vann (deceased) 
was next Vice President and no records can be traced of actual work dur- 
ing her Presidency. Mrs. J. P. Holloman (nee Grace R. Brown) returned 
to North Carolina and was again made Vice President for 3 years. The 
work now really began to grow, for in 1899 we find 20 W. M. S organized 
and 9 Sunbeam Bands. The W. M. U. had previously met one after- 
noon in seperate session during the Association. Now the work had grown 
so that a special day was set aside for the W. M. U. meeting, but again 
with opposition from the men. They declared that the women could not 
carry on a worth while program for an entire day. For many years the 
preachers insisted a man lead the devotional at all W. M. U. meetings. 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



25 



The next year the W. M. U. West Chowan reported 29 W. M. S. and 11 
Sunbeam Bands. Programs te the Associational meetings were made up 
of inspirational and informing addresses by Associational leaders, State of- 
ficers, returned missionaries, reports made from societies business and at 
night a sermon was preached by some minister. 

No record is found again until 1910 when Mrs. Elizabeth Parker (Mrs. 
G. C. Parker) oecame Vice President and presided at the 16th meeting. 
She continued for three years leading the work to grow from every stand- 
point with Mrs. John Freeman and Miss Willie Lambertson helping as Sec- 
retaries. In 1913, Y. W. A's, G. A's, and R. A's were being organized 
throughout North Carolina and Miss Blanche Barrus presented the need 
of a young peoples leader to West Chowan and Miss Willie Lambertson 
was elected to this place. Mrs. John Freeman leading as Vice President 
for one year and Mrs. Herbert Jenkins young People's leader organized 
3 G. A's, 11 Y. W. A's, and 3 R. A's. 

In 1915 Miss Willie Lambertson was made Vice President and with the 
aid of Mrs. Herbert Jenkins as Secretary and other workers, 14 new So- 
cieties were organized also mission funds grew. 

At Cashie church in 1915, the Union decided to undertake some special 
work and they decided to support a missionary. Miss Pearl Johnson was 
chosen and until present is supported by the Union. 

Mrs. Herbert Jenkins Associational Superintendent (name of office 
changed), Mrs. John Vann, Secretary, and Miss Mary Winborn as Junior 
Superintendent, did outstanding work in organizing and funds in 1916. 

In 1914 the work had grown until the Union -decided to organize a 
County Union in each of the 3 counties of the Association, to meet each 
5th Sunday afternoon. These meetings grew so rapidly that the meet- 
ings were changed to an all day- meeting, once each quarter. The County 
Unions have given Chowan College scholarships, training school scholar- 
ships, supported Bible women, supported mission study and county lib- 
raries. 

In 1917 Miss Una White was elected Superintendent, continuing as ef- 
ficient leader and organizer until present, with Mrs. E. B. Lassiter as Sec- 
retary and Treasurer for 3 years, Miss Mary Pritchard for 5 years, Mrs. 
E. A. Huggins until present. 

The need of a Mission Study leader was presented in 1921, and Miss 
Bessie Taylor was elected to this place. 

In 1922, Personal Service Superintendent was added to the force of 
workers, with Mrs. E. B. Vaughan as the first Superintendent. 

In 1924 transportation made the meeting so accessible, delegates only 
spent the day. Night services was dispensed with. 

In 1929 The) Young People's Superintendent, Miss Leona Harris with a 
competent corps of helpers conducted the first Young People's Encamp- 
ment for W. M. U. Auxiliaries at Chowan College. 

There is now a W. M. S. in each church in the Association, 26 Y. W. A., 
28 G. A's 23 R. A's and 43 Sunbeam Bands. Total members enrolled in 
organized Mission work, 3,745. Total amount given by W. M. S. and their 
auxiliaries past year in West Chowan $21,855.54. • 

For lack of space and direct information, this is only an outline of our 
achievements, but to those of our workers, to our State leaders who hav6 
brought us stimulus and information, to our returned missionaries who 
have brought to us spiritual blessings and encouragement I woul say — 

"The Lord bless thee and keep thee, 
The Lord make His face shine upon thee, and 

be gracious unto thee, 
The Lord lift up His countenance on thee and 

give thee peace." 



The 35th Annual session of the Woman's Missionary Union 
of the West Chowan Association met with Seaboard church, 



26 



FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL SESSION 



March 27th, 1929, Miss Una White presiding. After a hymn, 
"Fm Thine O! Lord," Mrs Eunice Stephenson conducted the 
devotional. Scripture lesson used, Roman 10:18-16, draw- 
ing from this lesson "Go Forward." 

One often hears of the key note of a meeting, but the key 
note of this meeting was sounded forth in chords of love and 
service which blended to make a complete harmony. 

The first great chord was hospitality sounded forth by Mrs. 
R. M. Maddrey in her welcome to the Union and visitors. 
Many notes formed this chord and each one touched a respon- 
sive note in the Union's appreciation sounded by Mrs. R. H. 
Underwood, of Meherrin. 

Miss Una White, superintendent, gave her report showing 
a gain in Standard of Excellence, increase in Mission Study, 
and an increase in Literature subscriptions. As a whole, the 
Union did not meet the financial aim, but the Ruby Anniver- 
sary strengthened the cause and Christian Harbor, and Me- 
herrin were enrolled in the Book of Remembrance, while Ahos- 
kie and Aulander surpassed these, ea'ch giving a perfect Ruby. 
Four others, Cashie, Colerain, Roberts Chapel and Seaboard 
gave over a half perfect Ruby. The Union's aim for the year 
was $19,000 and total paid was $15,628.91. 

Statistical report was given in full. Financial report was 
given in full. Standard of Excellency was; 

A-l. Christian Harbor, Lewiston, Menola, Roberts Chapel, 
Seaboard.

C. Ashley Grove, Colerain, Elam, Hebron, Meherrin, Rich 
Square, Union, Winton. 

D. Horton's, Roanoke, Ross\ 

Notwithstanding the testing times the spirit of loyalty was 
showed and work continues upward trend. Report adopted. 
Treasurer report given later in day. 

Mrs. C. C. Harrell, Young People's Superintendent's report 
given by Mrs. Herbert Jenkins showing small increase or 
rather poor reporting. Jr. organizations urged to report. 
Report adopted. 

Mrs. W. D. Boone, Jr. Superintendent, showed why Jr. or- 
ganization failed in standard was due to failure to report, but 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION

gave the following: 39 churches have no R. A's and 18 no 
Sunbeeams, according to their lack of report. She begs moth- 
ers just for 1 year to help, for if only 1 year they help the work 
will go forward. Report adopted. 

Mrs. G. T. Underwood, Personal Service Superintendent, 
had her report given by Mrs. Babb and it showed a wealth of 
Christ like ministries the societies are rendering every day in 
His name and shows the Union is doing organized work. Re- 
port adopted.

a subject. His message was of love and knowledge. "One 
who loves most, lives most," stating knowledge was the out 
reach of love. He plead for better fostering of our church 
schools through our love as they were the seed beds. The se- 
cret of the great growth of the denomination is due to faith in 
the New Testament and belief in knowledge, begging us to 
love the Master and fellowman more, as it would help our 
faith to enlarge and our sacrifice to bring joy. He closed wich 
a striking illustration from the life of a western North Caroli la 
woman. 

Mrs. W.. D. Bostick, of Pochow, China, harmonized the 
chord with sweet notes of personal service in her missionary 
work in interior China. She told of her early work, stating 
that in all interior China mission 25 years ago, only one wo- 
man had ever heard of Jesus. Showed how her conversion

FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL SESSION 



was a day of beginning. Later they could call into service 
Christian converts and thereby with aid of Tabernacle Baptist 
church, Raleigh, build a church. She gave her methods of 
teaching and conducting service. She held the audience with 
spiritual illustrations and experiences. 

Rev. D. P. Harris cordially invited every one to dinner and 
then pronounced the benediction. 

Afternoon Session 

Service opened with hymn "Higher Ground" and Miss Ann 
Downey, of Chowan College, conducted the devotional, using 
2 Cor. 3-2, pleading for dedication of lives. 

Miss Frances Flythe, of Chowan College, followed with a 
solo, "Lord, Here Am I." 

Mrs. W. E. White, of Colerain, presented a most important 
phase of young peoples work in her talk on "Winning North 
Carolina Through Our Young People." If this keynote of love 
and knowledge of the youth could be really practiced, a real 
melody could be sounded throughout North Carolina. 

Mrs. Edna Harris, North Carolina efficient State Secretary, 
sounded the chord around the quotation, "There is nothing 
little, if Christ is in it." 

Mrs. Raleigh Daniels, of Weldon, gave a message in a solo. 

Stating that the West Chowan Specials having been misun- 
derstood, Mrs. H. J. Holloman, of Harrellsville, gave a most 
explicit and interesting explanation and directions in a talk on 
"West Chowan Specials." 

A unique memorial service was given in memory of our de- 
ceased sisters. A memorial duet by two Y. W. A's was sung, 
followed by a "In Memorium" by Mrs. E. A. Huggins, after 
which she called the roll. Mrs. Martha Futrell, Ashley

against Sabbath desecration practiced at filling stations and public bathing 
resorts, where things are sold on Sabbath contrary to teaching of the 
Bible, mixed bathing is publicly practiced, boat racing and other gamb- 
ling devices are engaged in. 

We call upon Sunday School teachers to give Bible instruction to warn 
the youth against these dangerous and immoral practices. 

We request our Secretary to furnish a copy of these resolutions to the 
Sheriffs and County Commissioners of the three counties and furnish the 
local papers with a copy for publication.

Name 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the North Carolina West Chowan 
Baptist Association. 

Membership 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches con- 
nected with this body and all ordained ministers who are members or pastors 
of said churches, together with the officers of this Association, and chairmen 
of all standing committees. Each church of one hundred members and under 
shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each additional one hundred mem- 
bers, an additional messenger; provided, that no church shall have more than 
four messengers, 

Objects 

Article 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend measures for in- 
creasing the harmony, the intelligence and spiritual power of the church- 
es, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources and their 
gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom on the earth. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sov- 
ereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legisla- 
tive council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend 
measures of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. 
Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the body, it may 
justly claim for itself, for its objects, and for its recommendations the very 
highest consideration and regard. 

Article 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any church that 
becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice, or that fails to repre- 
sent itself, either by messenger or letter, more than two successive sessions, 
without sufficient reasons, or that treats with contempt its objects and re- 
quirements, or upon application of a church for dismission. 

Rights of Churches _^

of an independent church of Jesus Christ. As constituent members of this 
Association, the churches shall have the right to advise, when desired, in case 
of difficulty, and suggest plans of usefulness to be adopted. It shall be the un- 
disputed privilege of any church to withdraw its membership from this Asso- 
ciation whenever it shall so elect. 

Duties of Churches 

Article 7. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as messengers

iness after enrollment of messengers. As soon as the new officers shall have 
taken their seats, the body shall be declared organized and prepared for bus- 
iness. 

Article 10. In order to conserve time and not interfere with the main 
work of the body, this Association will not consider any routine or miscellan- 
eous business except at the close of the discussion of each general topic. 

Duties of Officers 

Article 11. It shall be the duty of the Moderator to open the meetings 
punctually at time appointed; to enforce the rules; to enforce order, and to ex- 
ercise all the prerogatives of a presiding officer, according to the principles 
of parliamentary usage.

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

The blessing of God has been upon our work in foreign land. While there 
have been many difficulties, yet through the help of the Lord there have been 
many encouragements. 

Good progress has been made towards the further reduction of the debt 
winch has burdened the Board. The debt was reduced $187,423.56 during the 



10 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL SESSION 



year closing May %, 1930. 

The plan for reducing the debt is to apply 10 per cent of all receipts 
from the Cooperative Program, all special gifts made for this specific pur- 
pose, and all moneys received from the sale of properties owned by the 
Board which are not now being used for mission purposes. 

I am sure every Southern Baptist is profoundly grateful that the For- 
eign Mission Board at its annual meeting on October -8th. did not decide to 
withdraw its assistance from any field in which we are preaching the gospel. 

The Board adopted a budget for the year 1931 of $1,111,000.00, which is 
£280,000.00 below the budget for the present year. It is imperative that we 
realize fully, that this amount must be paid in-order that the progress of the 
Kingdom enterprise shall not be retarded. 

On the foreign field there are 1407 churches with a membership of 161. 
059. The native contributions amounted to $472,820.12. 

Southern Baptists should catch the inspiration of the throbbing life of the 
work in foreign lands. The past year has been marked by great revivals in 
many fields. Thirteen thousand, two hundred and fifty baptisms were report- 
ed, £ thousand more than have ever been reported in a single year. Progress 
along all lines has been made in all missions. The power of the gospel has been 
demonstrated everywhere. 

In Africa there were thirty requests for the eight graduates from the 
Theological Training School last June. There was a great revival in the La- 
gos School which resulted in the conversion of over one hundred students in 
the upper grades. The hospital and college at Ogbomoso had the greatest 
year in their history. The Nigerian Baptist Conventions made fine progress. 
It has now 200 churches in its membership practically all of which are self- 
supporting. 

In Latin America our work is making splendid progress. In Argentina and 
North Brazil, we have 208 churches, with a membership of 12,403. 

Chile is the newest field the Foreign Board has entered. There were spe- 
cial evangelistic metings held in every church in the country with fine results. 

In China our work is going forward in a gratifying way. War has re- 
tarded the progress of our work to a certain degree, but the outlook is very 
promising. In spite of the fact that war has been in progress, our work has 
moved on very nicely. 

In Hungary, Italy, Japan, Jugo Slavia, Mexico, Roumania, and Spain 
there has been a substantial gain in membership. 

Thus reads, like added pages of the Acts of the Apostles, the story of our 
work in foreign lands.. Out among the countless hosts of lost men our Father 
has set his seal of approval and blessing upon the labors of our missionary 
messengers. He has kept his promise to be with those who GO. The needs 
of the unredeemed world, the command of our divine Saviour, the favor of 
our Heavenly Father marvelously manifested upon our labors in all fields, 
should speak with irresistible force to Southern Baptists "that they go for- 
ward."

LONNIE SASSER. 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

North Carolina Baptists are this year completing one hundred years or 
organized effort. At the very beginning our fathers made plans for evangeliz- 
ing North Carolina. If the record of these one hundred years were examined, 
it would 'be found that many of our strong and generous churches in the lead- 
ing towns and centers of the state, were organized and planted through the 
sacrificial labors of faithful state missionaries. 

Sometimes we hear the idea advanced that soon we will have finished the 
job of State Missions and that all the needy and promising fields will be oc- 
cupied. But with the ever changing conditions and the rapid growth of the 



WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION 



11 



state is industrialism, in good roads, in public education, in the rapid shift 
of the population from the country to the town and city, there comes with ev- 
ery new generation new opportunities and new responsibilities for evangelizing 
and saving our own people. . 

In the percentage division of our Co-operative funds, State Missions re- 
ceived twenty cents out of the dollar. In addition to this, all funds given 
through the Sunday Schools on State Mission Day, the last Sunday in October, 
goes to State Missions as an extra amount. 

This year there are eighty-four missionaries in the employ of the Board, 
serving about one hundred and fifty churches. The Board is caring for the 
Sunday School, W. M. U., B. Y. P. U., and Student Work. This year we took 
the Indian work among the Indians in Robeson County and the Cherokee work 
in Swain County. 

The task is greater and the need is more imperative today than when our 
fathers began the work one hundred years ago. Our Board is heavily handi- 
capped with a debt, and every church and Sunday school is urged to have a 
worthy part in this great statewide effort to lift the burden from our State 
Mission worjc.

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

Home Missions might be defined as that group of missionary and evan- 
gelistic tasks which, either because of their nature or their size and diffi- 
culty, can best be done by a Southwide agency. 

The Home Mission Board is the Southwide agency through which South- 
ern Baptists are doing their Home Mission work. The field of operation for 
this Board is the territory of the Southern Baptist Convention, the four West- 
ern Provinces of Cuba and the Canal Zone. 

The work is divided into the following departments: Direct and Indepen- 
dent Missions, including work among the Foreigners, Indians, Negroes, and Ci- 
ty Mission work, with Dr. J. W. Beagle as Superintendent; Mountain Missions 
and Schools including evangelism, industrial centers and mountain schools, 
with Dr. J. W. O'Hara as Superintendent; Mission work in Cuba with Dr. M. 
N. McCall as Superintendent; Mission work in Panama, Canal Zone, with 
Stephen Witt as Superintendent; Missions to the Jews, with Rev. Jacob Gar- 
tenhaus as Missionary; Mission Study with Mrs. Una Roberts Lawrence as 
Director; W. M. U. Field work with Miss Emma Leachman as Field Worker; 
Church Building Loan Department with the Executive Secretary as Superin- 
tendent, and Rev. Geo. F. Austin as Field Representative. 

The work for the ensuing year was laid out as instructed by the Conven- 
tion on the basis of the cash receipts of the previous year. These receipts were 
$407,357.58 on the Cooperative Program and $32,397.18 supplemental receipts, 
making a total of $439,754.76. 

The Board set aside $250,000 to be paid on interest and principal of the 
debt. This necessitated some reduction in Mission work, but by combining 
lorces and consolidating mission stations, the Board is able to hold all of its 
liejas intact, though with reduced personnel. 

*.! Fl e B ° ard . has set itself definitely to the task of paying its debts, with 
the determination that when once out of debt, it will absolutely stay out of 
• , Sm ce September, 1928, it has paid in interest and principal on its indebt- 
edness $713,987 57. The reduction of the debt, however, is being made with 
the least possible inroads upon the Mission work. The minimum amount that 
cm be paid on interest and principal of the debt has been set aside as a fix- 
ed item in the budget of appropriations. Therefore, any increase in contribu- 
tions will mean an increase in Mission work. 

Last year we had 168 workers and they baptized 2,219 people. This was

IS baptisms per worker. When we remember that a great deal of this work is 
with very difficult groups like Foreigners here in our midst, in Cuba and Pan- 
ama, who have a background of Catholic teaching, this compares favorably 
will' any Mission work that our Baptist people are doing. 

Our people need to recognize the tremendous importance just now of our 
Home Mission work. This new day of industrialism is giving to us a new set 
of Mission problems. Cities are growing very rapidly. Industrial communities 
arc- springing up almost overnight. The tide of emigration is turning toward 
the South. All of these things create a real need for Home Missions. Our 
task is to mobilize our home forces for world-conquest for Christ, and our 
Home Mission work has a big place in this mobilization process.

I ._■ REPORT OF WEST CHOWAN M. M. U. 

The Woman's Missionary Union of the West Chowan is wonderfully or- 
ganized from the small child in the Sunbeam to the W. M. U. Each church 
with one exception has a W. M. U., and there are more Y. W. A's. recorded 
than any previous year. The other junior organizations have grown some. 

The three county unions continue to support Miss Pearl Johnson, mis- 
sionary to China. Hertford gives a Chowan College scholarship; Bertie gives 2 
Chowan College scholarships, and pays salarv of a Bible woman in China; 
Northampton gives a Chowan scholarship; a Training School scholarship, and 
supports a circulating Mission Study Library. 

Each county has held its regular quarterly all-day meeting with such 
messengers on programs as Mrs. L. V. Coggins, former young Peoples' Lead- 
ed of Missouri; Miss Emma Leachman and our own Miss Pearl Johnson. The 
midsummer meeting in each county was a Young Peoples' Rally, and well at- 
tended by the young people. 

Personal Service has been stressed, one phase of which means much 
to the societies and more to those whom they served. A visit and religious 
service was conducted once a month by a society at the County Homes. Thir- 
ty-five dollars was sent to Miss Johnson previous to her sailing home, and a 
"Love Gift" of $75.00 presented to her on her return home. Ahoskie Society 
on September 1st, in their new church building, entertained all past and pres- 
ent Associational W. M. U. officers, county presidents and officers of each 
society at a lovely tea at which time the "Love Offering" was presented to 
Miss Johnson. Our financial aim has not been reached and we fear it is not 
entirely due to financial depression, but rather that we have failed to "Be Ye 
Steafast" at all times. There has been an increase inmembership number of 
periodicals subscriptions, and a greater number of societies observed the 
Week of Prayer. 

We are grateful for the past in the Kingdom work and pray that we may 
put first things first and strive together to put our watchword for this year 
into real activity, by being, "Laborers together with God."

motion to adopt, after special music by quartette, R. D. Cov- 
ington spoke on Orphanage work at Mills Home. Report adopt- 
ed as follows: 

REPORT ON SOCIAL SERVICE 
The Orphanage 

The Orphanage manifests the response of the best impulse of the human 
heart to God's high call for service. And the support in sympathy, prayers and 
money furnishes a splendid agency for the enlistment and development of 
one of the purest traits of Christian character. Every child of the Orphanage 
is one of God's appeals to the sympathy, prayers and Christian charity of ev- 
ery Baptist in North Carolina. 

The Orphanage, therefore, apart from the inestimable benefit to the 
child, is one of the richest assets of the Baptists in our State. The strongest 
arguments for the Orphanage is the orphan, and the strongest appeal is the 
need of the helpless child. 

The Old Testament law abounds in provisions for the care of the fath- 
erless and the widows, and James summarizes the content of the undefiled 
religion in the pregnant passage, "Pure religion, and undefiled before God 
and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction 
and to keep himself unspotted from the world." 

On the other hand, the blessings received by the orphans and imparted 
by them to others can be computed only in eternity. Of the thousands receiv- 
ed at our Orphanage since 1885,, many have filled with usefulness their places 
in the various walks of life, some have risen to places of prominence and some 
have gone to their reward. 

The Orphanage is better equipped for service now than ever before. But 
still its needs are far greater than its capacity. 

Since a representative is in our midst to speak first hand of the needs 
of the Orphanage, we, your committee, will not burden this report with sta- 
tistics, but earnestly recommend to the churches of our Association to make 
Thanksgiving Day a special effort for a generous offering to the Orphanage, 



14 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL SESSION 



and that each Sunday School set aside one Sunday every month and designate 
the offering to the Orphanage. 

With thanksgiving for and pride in this splendid institution it should be 
our earnest prayer and constant effort that its source of power be greatly 
increased and its capacity gieatly enlarged as the Orphanage so rightly de- 
serves and the ^au.^ie it represents so deeply needs. 

Report tor Hospital 

The North Carolina Baptist Hospital reached its 7th birthday on May 
29th, of this year. From smail beginnings it has grown to be one of the lead- 
ing hospitals. It has successfully battled with the discouragements of the un- 
tried and now offers its helping hand to thousands of unfortnnate sick of our 
State. It constantly seeks the presence of the great Physician and the results 
of its ministry are significant. 

Thousands of patients have received treatment since it began its work 
and a large portion of these have been charity or part pay patients. For all 
of these the hospital has done its best and only eternity can reveal the bless- 
ings it has provided in the relief of suffering and the saving of human life. 
Truly we are in a great and worthy ministry and are following in the Sav- 
iour's steps when we engage in "healing humanity's hurt." 

The number of charity patients increases each year. It is over 15,000 who 
have applied for help this year and to care for these a sum of $50,000 would 
be needed. Unfortunately,many of the churches of our Association never give 
a cent on Mother's Day to help in this work, and this is the only money the 
denomination gives to help care for the sick. The four per cent from the 
cooperative program goes to pay the bonds issued to pay the debt incurred 
in the building of the plants. 

The amount of the contribution made annually by the Duke Fund is de- 
termined by the amount our churches contributed for the care of charity pa- 
tients taken care of in the hospital. 

The Nurses Home has been built and paid for. The cost of the building 
and equipment was $47,500. The good women of our state paid one half of 
this, the Duke Foundation paid $5,000 and the rest was given by other friends, 
and came as a loan from the operating account. No church was asked to give 
one cent to this splendid addition to our Hospital equipment. 

As your committee we recommend that we lay with renewed emphasis 
public charity work on the hearts of our people and to urge upon every one 
of the churches to make Mother's Day the special effort for a very liberal 
offering for the charity work of our North Carolina Hospital. 

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL RELIEF AND ANNUITIES 

The care of our aged and disabled preachers and the widows and orphans 
of deceased preachers deserves the most earnest and prayerful attention at 
the hands of all our people. The Relief and Annuity Board of the Southern 
Baptist Convention with headquarters in Dallas, Texas, with Dr. Thomas J. 
Watts as Executive Secretary, is faithfully and sympathetically administer- 
:ng and distributing funds placed in its hands by the churches. That far 
too little money has be tn contributed by our people for this nobly beneficent 
work all must freely confess. That more money should be given for the 
support of our veterans, widows and orphans will not be questioned. Surely 
our old ministers are deserving of better treatment in their declining years. 
What Southern Baptists are doing through their Board for these faihtful ser- 
vants of the Cross is helpful, but it is painfully insufficient. Surely, every 
church should strive to see to it that the old preacher is better provided for. 
Let some good man or woman in each church write to the Board for litera- 
ture and inform the people concerning this great need. Do not wait. DO IT 
NOW.

Important Changes in The Methods of The Relief and Annuity Board 

The Southern Baptitst Convention at New Orleans provided for the plac- 
ing of all gifts through the Co-operative Program into the Relief Fund. Alter 
the 31st of December, 1930, the Board's Annuity Department will receive no 
more money from the benevolent contributions of the cnurches. lhe reliet 
beneficiaries will get the full benefit of these gifts. They will, of course, con- 
tinue to receive also benefits of earnings on the Board's Relief Endowment and 
all contributions designated for relief. Not only so, the Board will strive to 
secure special gifts looking to the enlargement of the Relief Fund. If our 
churches will give the money that they should through the regular Co-operar 
live Program the relief beneficiaries of the Board will receive very much lar- 
ger benefits and a greater number of beneficiaries will be added to the roll. 
It should be clear to our people that the Relief Board cannot pay out money 
any faster than it comes m, but if the money is given the donors may know 
that the relief beneficiaries will get every dollar of it. 

The Service Annuity Plan 

Provision is now offered through the Service Annuity Department where- 
by churches can individually assist their preachers in building up for them- 
selves and their dependents an age or disability monthly income and do this 
building while they are in active service. Thus our ministers will be provid- 
ed for against the time of need and in the most economical way. Interest 
earrings will produce the greater part of the benefits. This is a method of 
prevention rather than cure. Churches are urged to get directly from Relief 
and Annuity Board or from an authorized representative the facts about this 
plan. This is a matter that cannot be acted upon intelligently without full in- 
formation. Many of our preachers and churches are ready to go into the plan 
and ere long their number will be legion. The more our churches do to pre- 
vent dependence in old age or disability on the part of their ministers the bet- 
ter. The Relief Board will not do less for preachers who come to old age un- 
provided for. In fact it will do far more than it has ever done for them. At 
the time it will, by the operation of the Service Annuity, bring about a condi- 
tion in which fewer preachers will come to old age without a support and this 
support will be more adequate. All serious minded Baptists will, upon taking 
due thought, approve the plan. The Southern Baptist Convention, after care- 
ful consideration, adopted the recommendations of the Committee of thirty- 
eight, consisting of two messengers from each state, approved the Service An- 
nuity and did this by a great majority. Therefore, the Convention has com- 
mended the plan for the use of cnurches and preachers. 

I. Sabbath Observance 

It is a source of great grief and anxiety when we observe what many of 
even of our church members are doing with their Sabbath days. So many are 
spending this day of worship on the highways, with apparently no thought 
or concern as to the proper use of the day and its privileges. To many it has 
become a day for mere pleasure seeking for pleasure's sake. Desecration of 
the Sabbath Day is one of the outstanding sins of the day and contributes 
to a large extent to the breaking down of the home life, the falling off in the 
attendance of divine worship, and teaching service of the church. It has well 
nigh paralyzed the evening worship in our churches. The failure of properly 
observing the Sabbath day has contributed more than any other factor in the 
ever increasing violation of human and divine laws, and lies at the root of our 
sad state of public morals. 

We must begin in our Christian homes to return to the strict observance 
of the Lord's day, and it must be faithfully practiced by those who follow 
Christ as their Lord — who is also Lord of the Sabbath Day. 

A return to proper Sabbath observance will be the salvation of many of 
our ills in the home and in the church life.

II. Law Observance 

We are grateful to Almighty God for the Constitution of the United Sta- 
tes, designed to protect civil and religious liberty — that dedicates Govern- 
ment to the promotion of the general welfare and guarantees to the people the 
right to determine the character of their laws through the election of repre- 
sentatives. We are grateful for the moral and social progress made under our 
institutions, especially do we give thanks for the success which has attended 
the Educational Campaign of the Churches for temperance and national so- 
briety which culminated in the Eighteenth Amendment, prohibiting the bever- 
age liquor traffic. The task of the churches in this respect is not completed. 
The traffic which has been placed under the ban now seeks to continue its ex- 
istence as an outlaw. The foes of the Eighteenth Amendment who would pan- 
der to the appetite and avarice of mankind, recognizing their inability to se- 
cure repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment, are seeking to nullify it in the fol- 
lowing ways: by the repeal of Federal, State and local laws enacted for its 
enforcement; by defeating legislative appropriations necessary to enforce it; 
by enacting laws to. permit the sale of beer and wine; by seeking the election 
of officials, from Constable to President, who are not in sympathy with this 
provision of the Constitution and who would be indifferent to its enforcement; 
by encouraging violation of the law and shielding criminals; by misrepresent- 
ing the results of Prohibition; last but by no means least, forming numerous 
well financed organizations to conduct propaganda for nullification and to de- 
feat officials who have been faithful to their oaths to support the Constitution 
of the United States. 

In view of these conditions, we, your committee, would recommend the 
following: 1. That great stress should be placed upon temperance, education, 
and law observance in our churches and Sunday schools; 2. That in the exer- 
cise of the right of suffrage it is our conviction that our people should support 
only those candidates for public office whose record shows them to be favor- 
able to our Prohibition policy; 3. That we pledge ourselves to observe the law, 
tit teach our children to abstain from the use of intoxicants, and we will sup- 
port officials who honestly try to enforce the laws and in every honorable 
way exert our influence to inculcate respect for authority and for the Consti- 
tution; 4. We affirm our faith in the Anti-Saloon League, the W. C. T. U., and 
pledge them our continued support.

REPORT ON EDUCATION 

During the World War we heard much about keeping the home fires 
burning. We understand, of course, the significance of the expression. The 
citizens at home were to do their whole duty so as to recruit the armies and 
furnish them all needed supplies. 

Similarly our forefathers realized if God's Kingdom was to be extended 
in the earth that the home base was to pulsate with life. They understood that 
if we would do greater things for our God, our people would have to be en- 
lightened. By sacrificial working and giving several Baptist schools were es- 
tablished in this State in those early days. 1 We now have seven schools and 
colleges owned and controlled by the Baptist State Convention of North Ca- 
rolina. As far as possible, the denomination is assisting these institutions. 

Some of them could not exist without this aid. Under this department, we 
are assisting young men and women to secure an education who are prepar- 
ing themselves for Missionary and Ministerial work. This year there are 
about 160 young men in these institutions preparing to preach the Gospel. 

Our schools are composed of three Senior Colleges, Wake Forest, Mere- 
dith and Chowan; three Junior Colleges, Mars Hill, Campbell, Wingate, and 
Boiling Springs Junior College.. There is a combined enrollment of nearly 
4,000 students at these institutions. Wake Forest this session has the largest 
enrollment in its history. 

In passing, we can but mention our Southwide institutions: Southern Bap- 
tist Theological Seminary, at Louisville, Ky.; Woman's Missionary Training 
School, at Louisville, Ky.; Southwestern Theological Seminary, Seminary 
Hill. Texas; Baptist Bible Institute, New Orleans, La. 

The Seminary at Lcuisville, Ky., now confers the Ph. D. degree. The re- 
auirements for this and other degrees are given in the Seminary catalogue. 

We thank God for every mention of the work that has been done by our 
schools and we look and pray for greater achievement in the future. How- 
ever, we cannot help but be alarmed when we realize there is a tremendous 
debt on some of our schools, and that others have inadequate endowment. We, 
therefore, urge the people of our Asscoiation to give larger support to our 
schools by real scriptuai giving.

25. We were favored by a solo by Miss Delano, of Chowan 
College, and a Beading by Miss Mary Stanly. 

26. On motion to adopt the -report on Education, Dr. W. B. 
Edwards spoke on the work and worth of Chowan College. He 
was followed by J. H. Matthews on the present situation and 
needs of the College. Oscar Creech, as .President of Pastors' 
Conference, offered the following resolution as practically 
agreed upon by the pastors of tne Association: 

Whereas, the General Board of the North Carolina Baptist Convention has 
been making annual contributions to Chowan College for running expenses to 
enable it to meet the requirements oi the State Department oi Education m 
maintaining its standard as an accredited senior college, and is now unable to 
continue such contributions for the present session; 

And whereas, Chowan College cannot continue its operation and maintain 
its standard as an accredited senior college without the financial support nec- 
essary to meet the requirements of the State Board of Education. 

Now, therefore, be it resolved: That the West Chowan Baptist Associa- 
tion join with the Chowan Baptist Association in adopting Chowan College as 
the institution of these two associations to be maintained as a standard senior 
college, and hereby pledges such financial support as may be necessary to 
meet the requirements of the State Department, of Education in maintaining 
its standard as an accredited senior college. 

Be it further resolved: That the West Chowan Association hereby appro- 
priates the sum of $7,500.09, to be raised by the churches of this Association, 
for the annual operating" expenses of Chowan College, and requests aii church- 
es of this Association to place Chowan College in their annual budgets as the 
institution for Christian education to be supported and maintained -by the 
churches of the Chowan and West Chowan associations, and that each church 
is requested to contribute and forward direct to Che wan College not less than 
one-third as much as it contributes to the objects of the Baotist State Con- 
vention to provide the necessary funds to meet the appropriation herein made. 

27. On motion to adopt, remarks were made by O. Creech, 
D. P. Harris, and C. M. Billings. The report was adopted by a 
rising vote. 

28. Dr. Thurman D. Kitchin, President of Wake Forest Col- 
lege, was recognized, and addressed the Association on Chris- 
tian Education. The report on Education was adopted.

HISTORICAL REPORT 

First of all we wish to receognize and give thanks for the mercies and the 
blessings of Gcd throughout another Associationai year. It has been a year 
of anxiety to all denominational interests from the headquaiters of the South- 
ern Convention down through the conventions, Associations and with the 
churches. The year has been an unprecedented period of anxiety and stress 
and uncertainties. The almost Nation-wide drought has been the most severe 
in the memory of any of us; crops in this immediate territory, as well as 
stretches of territory throughout the country, have been les^> th&ki normal, 
both in production and in prices; cotton, peanuts and tobacco, the three mo- 
ney crops of this territory, have not reacned higher than fifty per cent of 
normal crop and prices are decidedly less than the cost of production; there is 
unusual depression on part of our people in every community of this Associa- 
tion. There has never been a year in the past two decades when money was 
so scarce,when it was so exceedingly difficult to raise money in the churches. 

Notwithstanding the financial depression that covers the country, there 
are many things for which we should be profoundly gratefui. We have had no 
destructive storms, no epidemic of diseases among cur people and we should 
thank Gcd for these blessings in the way of health and for the preservation 
of our lives. 

Most of the churches have had remarkably fine revivals and the attend- 
ance at these revivals was unusually good. The ingathering of members has 
been decidedly satisfactory. 

There have been several changes in our ministry since the meeting of our 
Association. Brother H. G. Bryant has moved from the field composed of 
Capehart, Ross and Green Cross, to Charlotte; Brother G. W. Burch succeed- 
ed Bro. Bryant and has taken hold of the work with a strong hand; Broth- 
er E. C. Kolb has taken charge of the pastorate of Windsor, succeeding Dr. 
C. C Cox who has moved to Norfolk, Va. Brother Kolb is a fine addition to the 
West Chowan ministry. We welcome him and Bro. Burch to our fellowship. 
All of us are grieved in the departure of J. L. Price who goes from Roberts 
Chapel and Buckhorn churches as pastor of Bethel at Bloxom, Va. No man 
has gone from us who leaves more genuine regret behind him. The people lov- 
ed him because he deserved it in every respect. We welcome Brother H. F. 
Brinson, who succeeded Brother J. I. Kendrick at Lewistcn and Kelford. Broth- 
er Brinson is a fine addition to our forces. 

Sandy Run has suffered an irreparable loss in the sudden and tragic 
death of Brother L. C. Hedspeth, who was a faithful deacon and loyal sup- 
porter and level headed leader in the church. No man could be taken from ua 
who could possibly be more greatly missed from the church than Brother 
Hedspeth. The Oak Grove church has sustained a heavy loss in the passing to 
his Heavenly Reward of that saintly and beloved deacon A. E. Saunders who 
recently slipped from us. Brother Saunders was a deeply consecrated man. 
He loved his church, loved the brotherhood, was a faithful supoorter of the 
Kingdom interests. We grieve at his going. 

Murfreesboro has been sorely bereft in the death of two of her substan- 
tial deacons, Brothers W. E. Jenkins and J. D. Babb. They were loyal and 
genuinely consecrated to every interest of their church and denomination. 

In the death of Brother Lawrence Baker, Caneharts has lost one of theii 
most useful and trusted leaders. The sympathy of all who knew him goes out 
to his bereaved church. 

Respectfullv submitted. 

C. M. BILLINGS.

messengers, and for each additional one hundred members, an ad- 
ditional messenger; provided, that no church shall have more than 
four messengers. 

Objects 

Article 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend

Kingdom on the earth. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon 
the sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesias-

churches and recommend measures of usefulness for their adoption, 
but cannot bind them in any way. Yet, in view of the combined wis- 
dom, piety and intelligence of the body, it may justly claim for itself, 
for its objects, and for its recommendations the very highest consid- 
eration and regard. 

Article 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any 
church that becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice, 
or that fails to represent itself, either by messenger or letter, more 
than two successive sessions, without sufficient reasons, or that treats 
with contempt its objects and requirements, or upon application of a 
church for dismission.

WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1931 



REPORT OF WEST CHOWAN W. M. U. 

The West Chowan Woman's Missionary Union has 53 Woman's 
Missionary Societies and 105 Junior Bands. Of this number 17 were 
A-l or made all points on the Standard of Excellence last year and 69 
made as many as four points on the Standard. 

During the past year, our Union followed practically the same 
plan of work used in previous years. Bertie, Hertford and Northamp- 
ton counties had its own Woman's Missionary Union. Each Union 
held quarterly meetings with a large attendance and programs full 
of inspiration as well as infomation — thus greatly increasing interest 
and activity in mission work. 

Our watchword for the year has been "That the world may know." 
We have had as our chief aims individual and united prayers; the 
study of the missionary message of the Bible and world missions; 
directed and individual personal service which includes soul-winning, 
enlistment and other community activities; stewardship of possessions, 
including tithes and offering and the missionary education of our 
young people. These aims have been partially reached but not as 
fully as we had hoped. 

As a Union, we have continued the support of our missionary in 
China, Miss Pearl Johnson, who gave us a heart -thrilling message at 
our annual meeting at Mt. Tabor in March. In addition to the reg- 
ular contributions to different objects of mission work, we have given 
four Chowan scholarships, one Louisville Training School scholarship 
and have supported a Bible woman in China. 

Through the efforts of one of our county Unions, regular monthly 
services have been held at the County Home and a circulating mission 
library has been secured. 

Our financial aim for the year was $14,800.00 and we gave $9,- 
809.10. Perhaps this deficit was due partly to the economic depession 
but doubtless the gifts were very small and important work was left 
undone because many of our capable women have devoted to selfish, 
worldly pleasures much time and money that should have been given 
to Kingdom interests. 

As a token of our love and appreciation for his earnest efforts 
in behalf of our Sunday School, B. Y. P. U. and other Associational 
work on Christmas eve our Union presented a radio to Brother R. B. 
Lineberry. 

Surely the greatest need today in our W. M. U. work is a deeper 
spirituality in its membership and a more willing, consecrated leader- 
ship. If every woman in the churches of our Association were enrolled 
in our missionary societies and not only enrolled but fully enlisted in 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1931 



15 



the mission work what great and glorious things would be accom- 
plished for the advancement of Christ's Kingdom. 

Relying upon our Heavenly Father for guidance and strength, 
may the record of the new year be the very best in the history of 
our Union. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MRS HERBERT JENKINS. 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

From the very beginning of the organized life of North Carolina 
Baptists, State Missions have held a large place in the thinking and 
planning of our people. One of the primary objects in the minds of 
our fathers in the organization of the Convention as stated in the 
first article of the Constitution, adopted at Greenville in 1830 was 
"the employment of missionaries within the limits of this State." 
This has been the consistent and aggressive policy of thte Baptist 
State Convention for more than a hundred years. The truth is, the 
wise and aggressive policy of State Missions, humanly speaking, has 
made the denomination what it is in members and power in North 
Carolina today. Napoleon said: "Conquest has made me what I am, 
and conquest will sustain me." That is certainly true of State Mis- 
sions, and the growth and enlargement of the Baptist churches in 
North Carolina demonstate the truth of it. Literally hundreds of our 
strong churches are trophies of State Missions. 

Great and far-reaching changes have taken place in North Car- 
olina within recent years. Three recent developments especially have 
thrust upon our country and village churches acute and citical prob- 
lems — the coming of good roads, the automobile, and the consolida- 
tion and growth of the rural grammar and high schools. We beleive 
these three developments are going to be the very acid test in the 
life or death struggle of many of our smaller rural churches. In the 
days of bad roads and lack of communication, there was some ne- 
cessity for a Baptist church every three miles. But that necessity no 
longer exists. Many of these weak, stuggling churches are doomed 
to die. Many more of them are going to be compelled to consolidate 
with others in the same territory. There must be better equipment 
and better support for the ministry. 

The great agency in this new and untried situation, for a sane 
and progressive program of work and development, ought to be our 
General Board of the Baptist State Convention. 

Let's strengthen the hands of this Board and begin with patience 
and zeal the effort to solve these great State Mission problems. 



16 WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1931 



REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

The Home Mission Board, through which the Southern Baptist 
Convention is doing its Home Mission work, has worked itself out of 
a very precarious financial condition and now stands on solid ground. 
Some workers have been dropped but the real mission work of the 
Board has been continued. This has been done in the face of de- 
creasing receipts, in two ways: (1) by giving to the missionaries more 
territory, and (2) by reducing the appropriations to institutions. The 
Board is interpreting "Missions" to mean primarily the "making and 
baptizing of disciples," and is, therefore, majoring on preaching the 
Gospel to Foreigners, the Indians, the negroes in the congested dis- 
tricts of our Homeland and in Cuba and Panama. 

The Home Mission Board's record of work from its organization 
in 1845 to 1931, a period of eighty-six years, is unsurpassed by any 
missionary organization in the world. 

When the Home Board was organized in 1845, there were 7,325,- 
000 people in the South of whom 4,525,000 were white and 2,800,000 
were negro slaves. There were also 350,000 Baptists, of whom 225,000 
were white and 125,000 were negro slaves. We now have 45,000,000 
people— 35,000,000 white and 10,000,000 negroes, we have 3,850,000 
white Baptists. 

During this period from 1845 to 1931 the Board employed 40,862 

missionaries. 

These missionaries reported as a result of their work 785,135 
baptisms. 

They organized 8,570 churches. 

The Board received and expended in this work $20,027,700.00. 

The 785,135 baptisms represent one-fifth of the total present 
membership of the Southern Baptists. 

The 8,570 churches organized is one out of every three of the 
25,000 churches Southern Baptists now have. 

The 40,862 workers represent the amount of service that one 
hundred men could render if they had begun their work on the day 
that the Ark landed on Mt. Ararat, and had continued until the 1st of 
May, 1931. 

The $20,127,700.00 spent by the Board includes all of its work- 
millions of dollars have been given to church building and other en- 
terprises, and yet based on this total, the 785,135 baptisms reported by 
the missionaries of the Home Mission Board cost on an average of a 
fraction over $25.00 a piece. 

We do not believe that there is a missionary agency in the world 
that can duplicate this record. 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1931 17 



What of the Future 

The Home Mission Board provides an agency through which 
Southern Baptists can bring the impact of the whole denomination 
to bear upon any mission problem anywhere in Southern Baptist 
territory. 

territory. With the co-operation of the State Boards, Southern Bap- 
tists through the Home Mission Board will be able to evangelize the 
Southland, spread the Gospel to the foreigners who are in our midst, 
help the negroes to come into their own as a Baptist people, build 
denominational morale and revitalize our spiritual interest throughout 
the whole Southern Baptist territory. The prospects for the future 
for Home Missions are as bright as the promises of God and the faith 
of His people. 

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

The Foreign Mission Board reports the largest number of bap- 
tisms it has ever been able to report in any one year — 14,415. Rou- 
mania again leads in the number of baptisms — 5,500. Italy reports 
a larger number of baptisms than in any previous year — 396. Gracious 
revivals were reported in the Shantung Province in North China, in 
Canton, Shanghai, Soochow, Lagos and in West Africa, and numerous 
other places. 

The mission schools have been crowded with students and large 
numbers were turned away. In spite of the closing of two hospitals, 
the others had a record year in treating the ill and stricken people. 
The nine hospitals treated 73,784 patients compared with 85,431 
patients treated in our 24 hospitals here in the Southland, most of the 
treatments being on the charity basis. The five publishing houses on 
foreign fields could not meet the demands for literature. 

The present personnel of our mission workers consists of 425 for- 
eign missionaries, of which 79 are at home on furlough, and 2,052 
native missionaries who are operating in fourteen different countries. 
Fifty-eight missionaries have returned to the field during the year, 
sixteen have retired and six died. 

The debt of the Foreign Mission Board January 1st, 1928, was $1,- 
145,000.00, on January 1st, 1931, it was $945,366.00, a net redfuction of 
$200,000.00. The reduction would have been far greater but for the 
slump in receipts of $265,000.00 in 1929. When it became apparent 
that there would be a serious loss in the receipts for 1930, the Board 
curtailed its expenditures $51,000.00 from the amount appropriated 
for the year. In making the appropriation for 1931, the Board re- 
duced the appropriation $280,000.00 below the amount appropriated in 



18 WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1931 



1930, a reduction of twenty per cent. The Board suspended tempor- 
arily the payment of ten per cent of program receipts upon the debt. 

We feel constrained to call attention to another debt. We spend 
so much time worrying over the bank indebtedness Of the Board that 
we overlook this other debt which presses persistently for payment 
every day. This is the debt to be paid before all others. Perhaps 
the reason why we are having so much trouble paying the debt in 
the banks is because we have defaulted so sadly in paying this pre- 
ferred debt. The surest guarantee of payment of our bank indebted- 
ness would be the payment of this primary debt. 

This is the debt to the nations which Paul confesses in the First 
Chapter of Romans when he says: 

"I am debtor both to Greek and to Barbarians, both to the wise 
and to the foolish. So, as much as is in me, so I am ready to preach 
the Gospel to you also that are in Rome. For I am not ashamed of 
the Gospel; for it is the promise of God unto salvation to every one 
that believeth; to the Jew first and also to the Greek." 

If Southern Baptists will pay fully this debt to the nations, the 
cause of Christ in the world will be set forward without delay. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. M. DUNCAN.

15. Report on Social Service was read by A. W. H. 
Jones as follows : 

REPORT ON SOCIAL SERVICE 
Orphanage 

Jesus, our Lord and Savious, said: "Except a grain of wheat 
fall into the earth and die it abideth alone, but if it die it beareth 
much fruit." 

We interpret this as meaning that the richest and fullest Christ- 
ian life is conditioned upon service. 

Man best serves God in serving humanity and we rejoice that 
there are Christian men and institutions that, like the Master, are 
among us as those that serve. j 

We praise God for the Baptist Orphanage that was established in 
1885. Since that time hundreds of children have entered that home 
and their every interest of body, mind and soul has been cared, for. 

Eternity alone can tell the good that has been done through the 
Christian service rendered by this institution. 

We pray God that our people of the West Chowan Association 
in particular and of the State in general may be impressed with the 
importance of this work as never before and give to our Orphanage 
a more whole hearted support. 

We sincerely trust that the Thanksgiving offering this year may 
exceed all previous years and that every Sunday School will set 
apart a Sunday to make an offering for our children at the Mills 
Home. 

May our people remember that one phase of pure religion is to 
administer to the needs of orphans. 

Report on Hospital 

The North Carolina Baptist Hospital has been established a 
little over eight years. 

Many have been the struggles and difficulties that those in 
charge of the institution have overcome and it is now one of our 
leading hospitals. 

Thousands of afflicted and suffering people have received free 
treatment during these years. 

Doubtless many of these people would have died but for the free 
service given. This institution needs thousands of dollars to carry on 
the work. 



20 WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION ,1931 



Sad it is, nevertheless it is true, that many of our churches con- 
tribute little or nothing to this cause. 

We, your Committee, most earnestly urge that our Mother's Day 
special offering be greatly increased. 

Report on Ministerial Relief 

The care of aged ministers and their dependents has all too 
long been neglected by many of our people. 

The Bible teaches that the man who does not care for his own 
household has denied the faith and is worse than an infidel. 

How much greater sin to make such inadequate provision for our 
aged saints who are of the household of faith? 

What our people are doing and what they have been doing for 
this worthy cause is altogether insufficient. 

Therefore, we request that the churches by sacrificial giving in- 
crease their gifts to Co-operative Program in order that all the in- 
terests ^of the Kingdom in general and Ministers Relief in particular 
may receive better support. 

Sabbath and Law Observance 

It is with grief and painful concern that we observe that there 
are multitudes, many of them church members, who look upon God's 
holy day as a picnic holiday rather than a day of rest and worship. 

If under the Law, "Remember the Sabbath day and keep it 
holy,, was binding upon the Jews, how much more under Grace is 
it binding unop Christians to honor and reverence Sunday. 

This unchristian attitude towards God's holy day often expresses 
itself in many forms of lawlessness. 

We deplore this increasing disregard for many of our laws in 
general and the Prohibition Law in particular. 

Therefore, we would earnestly urge that "Every one who has 
named the name of Christ depart from sin." 
To this end may we all pray and work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

A. W. H. JONES, 
E. Y. POOLE,

RESOLUTIONS 

In this day of moral chaos and confusion the world over, The 
West Chowan Association in its 49th annual session, representing 57 
churches with a total membership of 15,000, affirms its positive belief 
in Jesus Christ and His teachings as the only way out of chaos into 
order and out of darkness into light. 

Prohibition continues to be agitated. We re-affiirm our long 
standing belief that the liquor traffic is one of our greatest social evils 
and has always had other social evils as its allies. For the sake of our 
children and for the sake of the children of others, we take our stand 
squarely behind all of our prohibition laws and we believe that no 
person is worthy of our vote who does not believe in the support of 
our present prohibition laws and who does not believe in the enforce- 
ment and observance of all laws which promote the welfare of the 
people. 

As to war, the modern world with its scientific devices for death 
and destruction has made war unthinkable. War must go or civiliza- 
tion must go. We are for universal peace. We shall educate for 
peace, think peace, talk peace, and preach peace. 

As to marriage, when there is so much loose teachings in our 
current books, magazines, and periodicals, we affirm our old belief 
in the beauty of love and the sanctity of marriage. 

As to our present economic disturbance when millions of our 
countrymen are without employment, although we propose no posi- 
tive program for economic readjustment, we firmly believe that much 
of the present suffering in our country is the result of an economic 
order which fails to recognize the Divine truth that we are our 
brother's keeper and that human rights precede property rights. An 
economic order which has placed multiplied millions into the hands 



22 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1931 



of a few, leaving millions of others without ways and means of pro- 
viding food and raiment for their families is not keyed to the teach- 
ings of the New Testament and the Christian Religion. Such an 
economic order must be redeemed spiritually or it will utterly 
collapse. 

Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be sent by our Clerk to 
the Baptist press of the State, the local secular press and to the News 
and Observer. 



19. G. T. Lumpkin spoke in the interest of the 
Baptist Hospital at Winston-Salem. 

20. After special music by Chowan College talent, 
R. L. Bolton conducted the morning devotional. 

21. Report on Education was read by Dr. W. R. 
Burrell as follows : 

REPORT ON EDUCATION 

The condition of our educational enterprises is substantially the 
same as last year. The reasons for the establishment and support 
of these institutions are well known to our people and need no 
elaboration. We report the same number of institutions as last year 
and sorrowfully admit that they face the same tragic problems. By 
a superhuman effort the State and Southern Boards have been able 
to retain all our properties, and to carry on up to the present. 

One bright spot in our educational outlook is the increasing 
number of students who are seeking admission to our various schools. 
It is evident that the whole question of denominational schools is 
still in a state of flux, and no man may safely predict what the 
outcome may be. 

Nevertheless, we hold steadfast to the faith, that dear as are these 
institutions to the hearts of our people they are still dearer to the 
heart of the Master, and we believe they have yet a large part to 
play in the ongoing of His Kingdom. The necessary facilities for 
education on the part of the State and commanding demands for 
larger equipment and higher standing in private schools constitute 
a challenge to large liberality and deeper loyalty on the part of God's 
people. 

The most noteworthy event in respect to our local institution, 
Ghowan College, has been the admission of male students to all 
classes. This now appears to have met with widespread approval 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1931 23 



and gives promise of hastening to solution some of our most insistent 
problems. 

Meantime the ever pressing necessity of keeping pace with the 
demands of the State and answering the appeals of the growing 
numbers of young people who are knocking at our doors, pleading for 
the opportunity of a Christian education, present to our churches 
and individual members a surpassing opportunity for the highest 
kind of Kingdom service. 

A closing observation: While we continue a generous support of 
our educational program, both State and Southwide, let us not forget 
that our first duty is to our own local college. Let us rally to its 
support that it may become all that its most ardent friends could 
desire. This we do by 

1. Seeking to deepen the spirit of loyalty to it. 

2. By increasing the number of scholarships available. 

3. By more generous contributions from the churches in accord- 
ance with the resolutions of last year's session. 

4. By remembering her in the making of our wills. 

The more general work of Christian education is embraced Sun- 
day Schools, B. Y. P. U. training service, W. M. U. training schools, 
Daily Vacation Bible Schools, etc., which are treated in separate 
reports. 

In conclusion, we humbly commit this great cause to the care of 
God and His people, thanking Him and them for the blessing of 
Divine guidance and generous support through these difficult and try- 
ing years and again pledge our undivided loyalty to this phase of our 
common task.

REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

The call for a more systematic and careful study of the Bible 
looms large on our Christian horizon. The Sunday School next to 
the home furnishes a sublime opportunity and place for enlarging 
our vision, feeding our souls on spiritual food and studying together 
and meditating on God's Word. 

In our Association, the Bible School is finding a deeper and more 
abiding place for searching out the unsaved and leading them to 
Christ. It also affords a life saving as well as soul saving station for 
the individual. 

The West Chowan Association has at present an enrollment of 
9,834, which sad to say is less than reported a year ago. In 1927, 



24 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1931 



there were 9 Standard Schools. Today we have 13. In 1927, there 
were 235 officers and teachers holding Normal diplomas. At present, 
there are 359, a gain of 124. 

May God hasten the day when every church member shall be 
enrolled in the Bible School, learning more each day of the great pur- 
pose for which our Saviour died. 

Fraternally, 

W. 'R. STEPHENS, 
W. R. BURRELL,

Second Day — Afternoon Session 

24. Song service led by H. F. Brinson. Scripture 
read and prayer offered by E. P. West. 

25. J. H. Matthews presided at the afternoon ses- 
sion. Historian's report was read by C. M. Billings and 
adopted as follows : 

HISTORICAL REPORT 

In the beginning of our report, we wish to record our gratitude 
to God for every blessing vouchsafed to His people through another 
Associational year. The blessings of health, of food and raiment, of 
the seasons and the abundant crops, of peace and fellowship, are 
the best of His blessings and their value should not be forgotten for a 
moment. 

Prices of farm products are lower than they have been in more 
than thirty years; money is, therefore, harder to get and there has 
not been a period of such widespread depression within the memory 
of our oldest citizens. But God is our refuge and strength, a very 
present help in trouble. 

The gloom of the present depression has caused a falling off in 
contributions from the churches to an alarming degree. An amazing 
indifference has seized upon our churches and as a result every cause 
represented in our great program is suffering. Debts are increasing 
on all mission boards and institutions of learning. Yet we must not 
forget that our people have not been able to adjust themselves to 



26 WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION ,1931 



these stringent times in a way that will maintain our denominational 
work, and at the same time meet their own pressing business obliga- 
tions. 

During the year, many of our churches have held revivals with 
very fine results. Reports of unusually large ingatherings have come. 
Several pastoral changes have occurred since our last meeting. 
Brother Von Miller resigned at Rich Square, Menola and Potecasi. 
Brother Talton has recently accepted Rich Square, while Brother 
Sasser has accepted Potecasi. Brother D. P. Harris resigned Sea- 
board to accept Louisburg. Brother Andrews resigned the Winton 
field to go to Maryland. Brother Pool resigned Colerain and moved 
to Richmond, Virginia. 

The Oak Grove Church has sustained an irreparable loss in the 
homegoing of Deacon S. E. Marsh. He was a good man, honest to a 
fault, the largest contributor in the church and kind to the poor and 
needy, a man loved and respected by all who knew him. 

Deacon T. J. Stephenson, of Mount Carmel, has laid down his 
useful life and gone to his reward. He was a trusted and greatly 
loved deacon for a period of forty years. 

In the death of Rev. Dancy Cale there passed from earthly scenes 
and labors a princely soul, one who was loved as few men are loved 
and one who loved everybody as sincerely as he was loved. His pas- 
torate of nearly forty years at Galatia was his joy and pride. He or- 
ganized Ashley's Grove, where he was pastor for a number of years, 
and was pastor of several other Of our churches for long periods of 
time. 

26. The Clerk was asked to write Rev. E. Y. Poole, 
expressing sympathy and expressions of love from the 
Association. 

27. After special music from Chowan College, 
Dr. W. R. Burrell conducted devotional, interpreting 46 
Psalm. 

28. Digest of Letters was presented by the Clerk 
and adopted as read.

Words of welcome were given by Miss Bessie Grissom, 
Christian Harbor, to which Miss Rosalie Livermore, 
Meherrin, gave the response. 

Rev. E. C. Kolb made an interesting talk on Invest- 
ments in Christian Living. The round table discussion,

The evening devotional was led by Miss Lucille 
Mitchell, Harrelsville. Mrs. W. E. White, of Colerain,

CONSTITUTION 

Name 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the North Carolina West 
Chowan Baptist Association. 

Membership 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches 
connected with this body and all ordained ministers who are members 
or pastors of said churches, together with the officers of this Association, 
and chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of one hundred 
members and under shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each 
additional one hundred members, an additional messenger ; provided, that 
no church shall have more than four messengers. 

Objects 

Article 3. The objects shall be to devise and recommend measures 
for increasing the harmony, the intelligence and spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their resources 
and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom on the earth. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the 
sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor 
legislative council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches and 
recommend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot bind 
them in any way. Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intel- 
ligence of the body, it may justly claim for itself, for its objects, and 
for its recommendations the very highest consideration and regard. 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1932 7 



Article 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any church 
that becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice, or that 
fails to represent itself, either by messenger or letter, more than two suc- 
cessive sessions, without sufficient reasons, or that treats with contempt 
its objects and requirements, or upon application of a church for 
dismission. 

Rights of Churches 

Article 6. Each individual church shall hold and exercise all the 
functions of an independent church of Jesus Christ. As constituent 
members of this Association, the churches shall have the right to advise, 
when desired, in case of difficulty, and suggest plans of usefulness to be 
adopted. It shall be the undisputed privilege of any church to withdraw 
its membership from this Association whenever it shall so elect. 

Duties of Churches 

Article 7. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as mes- 
sengers as far as practicable, their most capable members, to require 
their attendance, and to send by them a contribution to the Association 
fund to pay for printing the Minutes and other necessary expenses. 

Article 8. It shall be the duty of each church to send an annual 
letter to the Association, giving: (1) locality; (2) names of its pastor 
and clerk and their respective postoffices ; (3) the Sabbaths of regular 
service ; (4) church statistics, including the number baptized, received

Article 9. The officers of this Association shall be a Moderator, 
Vice-Moderator, Clerk, Treasurer and Historian, who shall be elected 
at each annual session, from the members of the Association, and shall 
continue in office until the next annual election, which election shall be 
the next order of business after enrollment of messengers. As soon as 
the new officers shall have taken their seats, the body shall be declared 
organized and prepared for business. 

Article 10. In order to conserve time and not to interfere with the 
main work of the body, this Association will not consider any routine or 
miscellaneous business except at the close of the discussion of each gen- 
eral topic. 

Duties of Officers 

Article 11. It shall be the duty of the Moderator to open the meet- 
ings punctually at time appointed; to enforce the rules; to enforce order, 
and to exercise all the prerogatives of a presiding officer, according to

Article 12. It shall be the duty of the Vice-Moderator to discharge 
the duties of the Moderator in his absence.

portant documents belonging to the body. He may appoint an assistant 
when necessary. The Clerk shall receive for his services fifty dollars 
out of the Minute Fund. 

Article 14. It shall be the duty of the Treasurer to receive and dis- 
burse the money contributed to the Minute Fund, as directed by the body,

Article 16. On the first day of the session there shall be appointed 
a committee of finance, committee on time, place and preacher, and a

PROCEEDINGS 



OF THE 

FIFTIETH ANNUAL SESSION 

OF THE 

WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

Ahoskie Baptist Church 
October 25-26, 1932 

First Day — Morning Session 

1. The Fiftieth Annual Session of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association of North Carolina convened with the 
Ahoskie Baptist Church, Ahoskie, North Carolina, on Tuesday, 
October 25, 1932, at 9 :30 A.M. 

2. Oscar Creech, pastor, conducted a song service using 
"Come we that love the Lord" and "I need Thee every hour" ; 
he made a statement about the early history of the church and 
asked G. W. Burch to lead in prayer. "Faith of our Fathers" 
was sung also. 

3. Dr. W. Mitchell, Moderator, called the Association to 
order. The printed program as prepared by the committee and 
distributed was adopted. The Clerk called the roll of churches

only one church was not represented. On another page is 
printed a list of the names of the churches and their represent- 
atives at this session, those absent marked by the asterisk (*). 

4. Dr. Mitchell declined to be Moderator longer and on 
motion of C. M. Billings, J. H. Matthews was elected Mod- 
erator. On motion of H. F. Brinson, Herbert Jenkins was

Dowell, Dr. W. R. Cullom and J. A. Easley of Wake Forest, 
W. R. Beach of Raleigh, Tom E. Walters of Rocky Mount, 
W. L. Britt and wife of Richmond, M. A. Huggins of Raleigh, 
G. J. Burnett and C. S. Cashwell of Anti-Saloon League. 

7. W. R. Beach presented the claims of the Biblical Re- 
corder and renewed the race with the Robeson Association for 
subscriptions and renewals. 

8. W. B. Edwards read the following report on Education : 

REPORT ON EDUCATION 

What is Education? A drawing out. It should be, then, the result 
of drawing out or leading out — the development of the whole person. 

In our common parlance, we limit the sphere of such development to* 
the intellect. Hence, if we include the whole being, we must say Chris- 
tian Education. 

Lewis E. Lawes, one of our prison wardens, says, "Education is as. 
much a problem in Crime as in Ignorance. There is no inherent virtue- 
in learning itself." 

We infer from this statement that Education has as much to do with: 
character as with learning. Tennyson recognizes the necessity for 
harmonious development of the whole being in a stanza of In Memoriamz 

"Let knowledge grow from more to more 
But more of reverence in us dwell ; 
That mind and soul, according well, 
May make one music as before, 
But vaster." 

Education is essential in a democracy. Political philosophers of all cen- 
turies have taught, do teach, and will teach that men will do right if 
they have knowledge — consequently efficient state systems of Education 
have been evolved from such beliefs and teachings — and they are a nec- 
essary bulwark to their several states. But we believe there is needed art. 
additional protection to our fair land. 

There is more in Education than in mere knowledge. It is true that 
knowledge is power; and power wrongly used is dangerous. There must 
be in Education the content that will give the proper direction to the- 
power. Hence the necessity for Education dominated by the ideals of 
Jesus Christ. 

Some nations in the old country had no system of Christian Educa- 
tion to give a soul to the education under governmental control — all 
Education — primary, secondary, technical, collegiate, university, and even 
theological — was controlled and directed by government. Germany is an 
example of this. And what was the result? The cataclysm, carnage,., 
and chaos of the World War. 

I do not think that we need to go to Germany for such an example ; 
namely, to find that things have gone awry — society is on the verge of 
revolution — moral standards seem to have been revised downwardly. We 



1 2 WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1932 

listen with shameful blush on our faces to the utterance of indecent 
language. Not only has the mad rush for pleasure and restlessness made 
its inroads into our social life; but, alas, I fear it is making like inroads 
into our organized religious forces, as well. 

The writer has observed that we lay too much 'stress on the cost of 
fine buildings, average attendance, contributions to stated objects, and 
conformity to standards — rather than laying stress on man's need of the 
redeeming love of Jesus Christ. As I just stated, we seem not only in 
our day schools, but Sunday Schools, as well, to be sacrificing the real 
spirit for standards, for we hear the gospel of standards preached on 
every hand — and if this doctrine continues, we shall again crucify the 
real spirit of Christ on the Cross of Standards. Again, we consider 
worship at our churches as means to an end; namely, that of satisfying 
certain religious requirements and not the real spirit of worship. It 
seems to me that we think more of supporting boards than we think of 
supporting God's work. Our appeals are made to the head and not to 
the heart. What can be done to correct this situation and these condi- 
tions? Not only at home, in church, and Sunday Schools, and Christian 
colleges? It seems to me there. is but one answer — namely, uplift Jesus 
Christ. He stated clearly when He was on the earth that He — if He 
were lifted up — would draw all men unto Him. And just as powerfully 
should His words resound in our spiritual ears today even though re- 
moved nineteen hundred years from the time of Christ's utterance of 
them. This should be done all along the line. We should reestablish 
and strengthen family altars in our homes and churches and Sunday 
Schools should lay less stress on standards and more on the real spirit 
of Christ and His mission in the world. 

Now as to our colleges. Our schools must of necessity meet two 
requirements: First — Academic: In order to meet the demands of the 
state rating committee — a sort of tyranny of democracy, if you please. 
I wish it were possible to equip all our five schools that there should be 
an equality of equipment with state schools; but in order to keep them 
alive and virile we must keep in mind their purposes. 

Second — Christian Standards: Every care should be taken to make the 
entire environment Christian. What is environment? I answer my own 
question. The summons of the soul to action. This can be done — in 
what ways? 

First — By means of our religious organizations — Morning Watch, 
Evening Watch, B. Y. P. U„ Student Volunteer and Life Service Band, 
and Y. W. A. — very actively patronized and supported by our students. 
These religious organizations are first with us, so far as real value is 
concerned. Again, one year of Bible is required of every student who 
comes to Chowan College and takes a diploma or a degree. 

Second — By means of trying to make the entire personnel of the 
college constituency or family Christian. If this be done, the entire 
campus will be permeated by the spirit of the lowly Nazarene. And not 
only will this spirit be found on our campuses but it will exert itself 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1932 13 



after college walls are left and places of influence in the world are 
taken. 

What a responsibility rests on us as Christians ! If every Sunday 
School in North Carolina and every one of our five Baptist colleges 
would keep their personnel absolutely and entirely Christian, what a 
power for good they would be ! And through them, what could God do ? 
Let us not limit His power — but rather let us make and keep all these 
agencies Christian in deed as well as in name. 

Endowments are necessary but a Christian soul of an institution is 
vastly more necessary. 

J. M. Duncan, Chairman. 

Miss Cora Felton Bass sang and on motion to adopt the re-

14. J. M. Duncan offered the following resolution which 
was adopted : 

A part of the following resolution was offered to the Central Asso- 
ciation at its last session : 

Whereas, Christian Education is an essential part of the Christian 
program and is indispensable to the development of Christian homes 
and leadership, and 

Whereas, our Christian colleges furnish one-third of our college 
graduates and three-fourths of all the names in "Who's Who," and 

Whereas, our Christian homes and churches have sent only one per 
cent of their young people to Christian colleges, and Christian colleges 
have sent back ninety per cent of the ministers and missionaries, and 

Whereas, serious financial burdens rest upon the Baptist State Con- 
vention and some of our denominational schools, and 

Whereas, the churches of the West Chowan Association assembled 
this the twenty-fifth day of October, 1932, desire to continue to support 
Christian Education. Be It Therefore Resolved: 

First — That the West Chowan Association hereby pledges its loyalty 
to Christian Education. 

Second — That the Baptist State Convention in session November 15- 
17, 1932, appoint a commission, which commission will make a thorough 
and unprejudiced survey of the academic, Christian and financial con- 
ditions of and pertaining to our denominational schools and report with 
recommendations to the General Board, or to the Baptist State Conven- 
tion in called session within six months from November 15, 1932. 

Third — That the office of the General Secretary have prepared, as 
early as possible, a financial statement as of 1922-1932, showing for that 
period the total annual receipts for all education from all sources. Such 
as the Cooperative Program, sales of bonds, special campaigns, etc., 
annual disbursements to and for each school, all liabilities assumed by 
the convention for each school directly and indirectly, the total amount 
paid out on principal and interest, financing, etc., in retiring these obli- 
gations, and the net reduction of indebtedness as of the aforesaid period. 

Fourth — That a copy of this be sent to the office of the General Sec- 
retary and one to the Editor of the Biblical Recorder. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. M. Duncan.

SOCIAL SERVICE 
Orphanage 

There is no work that has a stronger appeal to our Baptist people 
than that of our Orphanage. 

And yet, with all our love for this institution and our appreciation 
of its value, and of the splendid work that is being done there by con- 
secrated, faithful men and women, we have to be reminded over and 
over again, year after year, of its needs, its shortages and its growing 
demands. 

On Saturday morning, August 20, a pall of gloom came over the 
Orphanage in the tragic death of the General Manager, Dr. Kesler. Dr. 
Kesler had been the General Manager at the Orphanage for twenty-seven 
years — having gone there on September 1, 1905. From an editorial in 
Charity and Children, of March 8, 1906, we quote the following: 

"Rev. M. L. Kesler has sense. He also has energy. He is not afraid 
of work. When he is managing a gang of boys he puts in the best day's 
work of all. He knows what is to be done and how to do it. He can 
put in a stove back, repair a sewing machine, weld a trace chain, run off 
a corn row, coax a gasoline engine into action, manage a graded school, 
make the best speech of the whole bunch or write an editorial that rings 
like a bell. There is hardly anything that needs to be done that he can- 
not do considerably better than anybody about him. He is a good, safe, 
sensible, conservative, prudent and practical man, and our people have 
already found it out." 

On September 15, the trustees of the Mills Home elected Professor 
I. G. Greer, of the faculty of the Appalachian State College, Boone, 
N. C, as General Manager to succeed Dr. Kesler. Mr. Greer has 
reached the age when one probably feels more keenly the sympathy and 
guidance of a "foster" father than at any other time. Mr. Greer has an 
enviable record as teacher of "History and Citizenship." He is a native 
of Watauga County. Surely we feel that the trustees have made a very 
wise choice in Prof. Greer, and we bespeak for him a great work at the 
Mills Home. 

On January 1, 1931, there were 634 children in the Home. There 
were 62 admitted during the year, making a total of 696. Of this num- 
ber 318 are boys and 378 are girls. The Mother's Aid Department aided 
80 families during the year, with a total of 338 children. This depart- 
ment spent $19,334.61 during the year. Of this amount $17,255.39 went 
direct to the mothers. Three hundred and fifty-five children are en- 
rolled in the elementary school and 136 in the high school, making a total 
enrollment of 491. The value of the plant is $1,132,468.76. The cost of 
operating the Home for the past year was $222,570.05. The per capita 
cost in the Mills Home was $22.14 per month ; in the Kennedy Home it 
was $24.55. The average cost per child per year was $271.87. 

If every church would make a monthly contribution to the Orphan- 
age and a great free-will offering at Thanksgiving the doors could be 



16 WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1932 



opened wider for the accommodation for the 464 who made application 
during the year. 

Hospitals 

Christ, as Prince of Preachers, commissioned His disciples to preach 
the glad tidings of the gospel; as Master Teacher He commanded them 
to teach His followers all things pertaining to His program; as the 
Great Physician He commanded them to heal the sick. Through the 
Christian centuries Baptists have been very loyal to the first two com- 
mands. Only since the ushering in of the last half century have they 
in any measure heeded the third command to Heal the Sick. Christ, 
Himself laid a worthy example for His followers to emulate in healing 
the sick. 

Southern Baptists have twenty-nine hospitals with a valuation of over 
$13,000,000. We have eleven hospitals in the foreign fields. North Car- 
olina Baptists have one hospital located at Winston-Salem. 

Denominational and private hospitals care for seventy-five per cent 
of all the patients of this country and spend less than one-half of the 
money used for this care. Fortunately the Baptist Hospital belongs to 
that class that makes a dollar go a long way. Our hospital at Winston- 
Salem has been hard pressed for the past two years. Demands for help 
greatly increase and income from pay patients decrease with the months. 
Many of the smaller hospitals have been compelled to discontinue taking 
charity patients and that has increased the number sent to the Baptist 
Hospital. At the present there are thirty-five patients in the North 
Carolina Baptist Hospital receiving help. They represent twenty-one 
counties, all the way from the Atlantic to the Tennessee line. They 
must be cared for or many of them will die. The hospital is receiving 
less pay patients which makes it very difficult to help pay the expenses 
of the part pay and charity patients. The first four months of this 
year shows 1,317 less pay patients than the same period last year. 
Mother's Day offerings fell off around $2,500.00 over last year. 

To meet these conditions, salaries have been cut, expenses curtailed, 
and much needed new equipment left off. 

Our churches must come to the help of this great institution for 
healing the sick or the doors will have to be closed to so many worthy 
and needy patients. The hospital has been commanded to keep out of 
debt and compelled to take the sick by our pastors and churches. This 
great relief agency of the North Carolina Baptists must have the support 
of every church who sends one of its members to the hospital to the 
minimum sum of $1.50 per day. That will not be asking too much of 
every church sending patients and will greatly help the hospital to take 
care of these sick and suffering. 

These are our Brothers and Sisters in Christ and it behooves every 
Baptist to see to it that our hospitals shall receive our whole-hearted 
support for their continuation.

Ministerial Relief 

The Southern Baptist Convention fosters the Relief and Annuity- 
Board, located at Dallas, Texas. This Board is only about fifteen years 
old, yet it has done a marvelous work. Industry and organized labor 
have been making provision for those who had rendered long and faith- 
ful service for many years. But only until this recent time have South- 
ern Baptists made any provision for those servants of the Cross who had 
been faithful and loyal to the cause of Christ. 

The work of this Board is divided into two departments : The Relief 
Department which aids worn out ministers and their widows and de- 
pendent children with funds derived from the Cooperative Program. 
The other is the Annuity Department which works somewhat like an 
insurance company. 

Recently there has been added a service plan whereby the local church 
can help the minister pay the installments in the Annuity Department. 
By doing this every church can help those who serve it to receive some 
income in case of disability or help their widows in case of death. 

Instead of eulogizing the Servant of the Cross at death it would be 
far better to make it more comfortable for him while he lives. 

Temperance 

"Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is de- 
ceived thereby is not wise." Never has the truth of these words been 
more evident than just now. And we might add, they are just as true of 
the friends of wine. They would mock us with modification which 
means nullification. And we shall be extremely unwise if we allow our- 
selves to be deceived by them. 

The greatest reform ever undertaken by men was launched when the 
good people of this land set themselves to the task of ridding the country 
of liquor and its attendant evils. And that reform was set well on its 
way to success when, after a generation of patient praying, tireless toil 
and persistent voting, forty-six out of the forty-eight states said, "Write 
into the Federal Constitution the Eighteenth Amendment, prohibiting the 
manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquor for beverage purposes within 
the borders of this nation." But let us not be deceived. The fight is 
not finished. The friends of liquor are making a desperate stand. And 
let us not become confused. The friends of liquor are fighting for 
liquor. 

Both major political parties in their national conventions laid planks 
of repeal and submission which in the end means the open saloon. 

The only hope left is in the election of a dry Congress. Two-thirds 
of both houses of Congress is required to propose a constitutional 
amendment and a majority in each house of each state legislature to 
ratify such an amendment, ratification of three-fourths of all the states 
being' required.

insofar as it is possible to do so in the coming general election.

REPORT ON MISSIONS 
State Missions 

The work of the North Carolina Baptist Convention is carried on 
under the direction of its General Board, with an executive secretary. 
Mr. M. A. Huggins as acting secretary is filling this position admirably 
pending the early choice of a successor to Dr. Chas. E. Maddry, who 
served for twelve strenuous years, resigned recently to become executive 
secretary of the Promotion Committee of Southern Baptists, and has 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1932 19 



now accepted a call to the executive secretaryship of the Foreign Mission 
Board. 

In our state work there are three departments : Missions, Education 
and Benevolences. This report deals briefly with the first of these. 

During the past few years deep cuts have been made in our state 
mission program, due to large outlays for education, particularly for 
the plant of Meredith College, and due also to declining contributions 
in these years of financial panic and general instability. How drastic 
these cuts have been is revealed by the fact that the number of mission- 
ary pastors fell from 86 in 1930 to 47 in 1931 and still further to 42 this 
year. Many of these men are laboring in places of great need and some 
of them are receiving less than $10 a month from the state board. In 
this work there is now much less than in former years of competition 
with churches of other denominations in "over-churched" areas and a 
laudable effort to evangelize sections which more completely lack the 
gospel of Christ. This is particularly true of certain new or rapidly 
growing industrial communities. Still, however, among such extremely 
needy groups as the inmates of our state prisons and camps and our 
struggling, aspiring Negro neighbors, who are so near and yet so far, we 
are doing little or nothing. Among the Indians of Robeson and Swain 
counties we have a few workers. 

Our Sunday School development and extension work has continued 
its progress under the capable leadership of Perry Morgan and his as- 
sistants, L. L. Morgan and Miss Bessie Morgan, with considerable 
monetary aid from the Sunday School Board at Nashville. Miss Winnie 
Rickett, experienced and winsome, has succeeded the highly effective 
Jas. A. Ivey as B. Y. P. U. Secretary. Miss Cleo Mitchell is doing most 
acceptable work among the students at North Carolina College for 
Women, Mars Hill College, and a few other schools. Rev. J. M. Page, 
"building evangelist," is laboring helpfully for the improvement of cer- 
tain village and rural churches, especially in cases where buildings are: 
to be erected or paid for. Intensive evangelistic work for religiously back- 
ward communities in twelve counties along or near the Atlantic coast,, 
and persistent efforts to arouse and enlist scores of laggard churches of 
the hyper-Calvinist, anti-mission type in the mountains — these and other- 
hard tasks are absorbing the energies of our state workers and of many 
temporary helpers. 

Beginning last year and continuing this year in perhaps a more thor- 
ough-going fashion, our state forces are promoting the every-member 
canvass for financial support of church and denominational enterprises. 
Here they are tackling one of the hardest problems of our Baptist life,, 
that of enlisting for worthy and regular giving a host of church mem- 
bers who have been dodging their responsibilities in this matter. The 
pastors generally and thousands of laymen and women are giving en- 
thusiastic cooperation in this fundamental and pressing work.

Home Missions 

In its report to the Southern Baptist Convention in May, 1932, our 
Home Mission Board gave a brief summary of its achievements during 
the eighty-seven years since it was constituted. We quote : 

"During this period the Board employed 41,062 missionaries. These 
missionaries reported as a result of their work 785,500 baptisms. They 
organized 8,570 churches. These 785,500 baptisms represent one-fifth of 
the total present membership of Southern Baptists. These 8,570 churches 
organized by Home Board missionaries represent one out of every three 
of the total number of churches Southern Baptists now have. The Board 
received and expended in its work during this period $20,500,000. . . ." 

In order to make large payments on its enormous indebtedness this 
Board has cut its normal missionary operations to the marrow. In May 
of last year it formally dissociated itself from a number of mountain 
academies, transferring the responsibility for their maintenance to local 
boards of trustees. A few years earlier the department of evangelism 
had been discontinued. 

At the time of the report referred to above, or during the year cov- 
ered by it, the Board had 38 workers and 122 churches and mission 
stations among the tens of thousands of foreign-speaking people in our 
southern cities. Several schools and good-will centers were being con- 
ducted in places of congested need. In 40 churches and mission stations 
among several tribes of Indians, almost wholly in the Southwest, there 
were 21 workers. Six workers among Negroes reported 404 reached by 
personal religious effort and 692 additions to the churches, 355 of these 
being by baptism after they had confessed Jesus as their Savior. Two 
men were working here and there among the 45,000 deaf people of the 
'South. A Seaman's Institute in Jacksonville, Fla., and a greatly useful 
Baptist Rescue Mission in the moral darkness of New Orleans were 
being maintained. Superintendent M. N. McCall and his helpers in 
Cuba were pressing the work through 42 churches and 46 additional 
preaching stations. Here, as in other fields of the Home Mission Board, 
emphasis has been placed upon the distribution of Bibles and other 
Christian literature, with all its power to bless by the grace of God. 

Thus does this great agency of Southern Baptists sow "the good seed 
of the Kingdom" in many places across our dearly loved South. More 
power to its right arm and more seed for sowing ! 

Foreign Missions 

The following words, timely and challenging, appear in the latest an- 
nual report of our Foreign Mission Board, presented to the Southern 
Baptist Convention five months ago: 

"The retardation of missions is not in fields abroad, but in the halting 
support which we here in the homeland are giving to our workers. The 
upheavals in all the world are jarring open still wider the doors of op- 
portunity for mission service. There has never been a day when the 
doors to missions were more open than they are today." 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1932 21 



Are we entering these open doors? Yes, the consecrated men and 
women who have ventured forth into all the world on our behalf and in 
the service of Christ our Lord have been entering doors that were open 
and knocking at doors that were closed. Last year 16,568 baptisms was 
the record — the highest number in all the eighty-seven years since South- 
ern Baptists launched this work. Think what these baptisms mean in 
the way of preaching, praying, personal work, deep searching of heart, 
firm decision, breaking away from ancient systems of faith and custom, 
and loyalty in the face of a thousand difficulties ! 

Our foreign missions are now in thirteen countries and in all the 
great continents except North America and Australia. The fields are : 
Africa, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Jugo- 
slavia, Mexico, Palestine-Syria, Roumania and Spain. We have 2,681 
foreign churches ; of these 1,868 have risen to self-support. In some 
fields the churches have been able to band themselves together in asso- 
ciations and conventions and even to launch home and foreign mission 
work of their own. Thus do the children of our loving labor grow up 
to manhood and service. Little less than mervelous has been the spirit 
of giving among these new Christians, living in such destitution as we 
have not seen. During last year our foreign churches "gave for the 
support of the work . . . $145,000 more than Southern Baptists gave for 
the Foreign Mission Board in 1906," only twenty-five years ago. The 
number of these churches in the twenty-five years has multiplied more 
than ten times. 

Besides evangelistic and church work the missionaries are giving 
service of immeasurable value in producing and distributing Christian 
literature, in teaching, in healing, and in other forms of ministry. Last 
year we had 319 schools of all types, from kindergarten through college 
and seminary, with 20,674 students. Our foreign hospitals, standing in 
the midst of untold disease and pain, numbered 28 buildings, with twelve 
missionary doctors, 10 missionary nurses, 27 native doctors, and 128 
native nurses ; and 73,069 patients received treatment in the name of the 
Great Physician. 

Let the members of all our churches understand that our unspeakably 
precious foreign mission work, crushed by debt and pressed to the wall 
by swiftly declining contributions, has come to a midnight hour. The 
Board's last annual report includes these words : 

"The budget for this year is one-quarter of a million dollars less 
than the budget for last year (1931). It is $525,000.00 less than it was 
for the year 1930. It is about $600,000.00 less than it was five years 
ago. . . . We have been cutting at a frightful rate of speed. . . . We 
have lost a net of 127 missionaries in the last six years. . . . This is a 
loss of almost a quarter of the largest missionary force we have ever had 
afield. It is the loss of 25 a year on the average." 

Since the foregoing statements were made the Board has had to re- 
call 30 additional workers. One of our wisest men, Dr. W. O. Carver of 
the Seminary at Louisville, recently has expressed the anxious fear that 



22 WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1932 



our foreign missions were in imminent danger of a further decline so 
serious as to approach collapse. May the compassionate Christ, lover of 
all men, give us the heart and the will to deny ourselves for the sake of 
his work among the teeming, pitiful millions of earth — these who go 
stumbling through the darkness, feeling out after God, and crying to us 
for the light that shines in his face. 

Ernest C. Kolb, 
For the Committee on Missions. 

WOMAN'S WORK 

The W. M. U. of the West Chowan Association is composed of 52 
Woman's Missionary Societies, 22 Young Woman's Auxiliaries, 28 Girl's 
Auxiliaries, 17 Royal Ambassador bands and 43 Sunbeam bands. Bertie 
County leads with 20 W. M. S., 10 G. A.'s, 8 R. A.'s and 18 Sunbeam 
bands while Northampton leads with 8 Y. W. A.'s. Bertie also claims 
two W. M. S. that made Al on the standard of excellence, these being 
Aulander and Lewiston. We have barely held our own this year in the 
number of organizations and again may not reach our financial goal, yet 
in some ways there has been development. We have established a cir- 
culating library, the office being at Chowan College in charge of Miss 
Grace Parker as librarian. We are still maintaining Miss Pearl Johnson 
as a missionary in China. Each of the three counties still has a quarterly 
meeting — the summer meeting being given to Young People's work. 
Bertie gives two scholarships to Chowan College and Northampton and 
Hertford each give one. My observation is that there is a spirituality 
among the W. M. U. of this Association as we go to our work, singing 
not only with our lips but in hearts "Jesus shall reign."

of Ahoskie Church by Oscar Creech was read and adopted, as 
follows : 

HISTORICAL REPORT 

During the year 1932 very few items of special interest have come to 
the attention of your historian. Economic conditions have not greatly 
improved and we doubt if the work in our churches has greatly im- 
proved over last year. Early in the summer Brother West resigned the 
Winton pastorate, and Rev. D. J. Robinson has recently accepted a call 
to that work. W. R. Stephens has resigned at Mars Hill, and Dr. W. R. 
Burrell has resigned the chair of Bible in Chowan College, and the 
churches in Murfreesboro and Conway, and has taken charge of Reed's 
Memorial Chapel in Asheville. Our hearts are sad because of Dr. Bur- 
rell's going. He was our best preacher and our profoundest scholar. 
He was loved by us all. He was our friend. We shall miss him. 

Dr. A. W. H. Jones has become pastor of Robert's Chapel. Seaboard, 
Elam and Oak Grove are pastorless. Mars Hill is also without a pastor. 

It is with a sense of deep sadness that we record the death of Deacon 
Kenton Phelps of Horton, which took place since our last Association. 
No finer Christian lived amongst us. He was loyal, consecrated and 
faithful to every duty, and was loved by all who knew him. 

Just a few days more than a year ago the writer of these lines was 
happily married to Miss Mary Ellen Whitney, professor of Romance 
Languages in Chowan College, and two months later, while on a visit to 
her family in Indianapolis, Indiana, she was stricken with pneumonia 
and lived only a few days. In her death a brilliant star fell from our 
earthly view, but she will live on in the hearts of her pupils and her 
fellow members of the faculty of the college and her loved ones. 

Aulander Church has suffered the loss of two of her fine and faithful 
deacons, Brethren W. D. Hoggard, age 81 years, and W. E. Chamblee, 
age 62. These brethren were much beloved and had honored their office 
in all their walks in life. They are greatly missed. 

John E. Vann, deacon and a prominent and useful member of Winton 
Church for many years, died this year. 

History of the Ahoskie Baptist Church, 1932 

The years 1802 and 1803 were characterized by a great spirit of re- 
vival in the churches of this section. In less than two years Meherrin,

1803, at a session of the Bertie Union meeting at Meherrin it is said that 
there were four thousand people present. Lemuel Burkett preached in 
the grove to the overflow. As he mounted the platform "It was expected 
from the appearance of the clouds to rain every moment, and before he 
was done preaching it did so. Notwithstanding this, the numerous con- 
gregation kept together, and one thousand people were exposed to the 
rain without any shelter ; some crying, some begging the ministers to 
pray for them, and some convulsed to the ground, and the greater part 
composedly stood and received the falling shower." While Rev. Burkett 
was preaching in the grove Robert Murrell was holding forth in the 
meeting house, and a scene similarly exciting was being enacted. (Dun- 
can's Brief History of Meherrin.) 

It was under such spirit of revival that the Ahoskie Church had its 
origin. Evidently it was during these two years of revival at Meherrin 
when people traveled from fifty to seventy-five miles to reach the church 
that the little Ahoskie meeting house was built as a branch of Meherrin. 

In 1804 the Ahoskie Church was organized with the following charter 
members (a partial list) : George, Josiah, Jalon and Bryant Holloman — 
four brothers, Wiley and Jesse Brown, Josiah Mitchell and wife, Thomas 
Holloman and wife, John S. Godwin and wife, Jesse Barnes and wife, 
Ryan Miller and wife, Jimmie Riddick and wife, Leslie Parker and wife, 
Hardee Hill and wife, William Slaughter and wife, Tom Sewell, Natahan 
Saunders. "The church was located on the north side of Ahoskie 
Swamp from which the name is derived (being Indian origin) midway 
between the Roanoke and Chowan rivers, in the midst of the most fertile 
section of eastern North Carolina. This church now has for one and a 
third centuries been the center of a religious and moral life, that has 
caused the community in which it is located to take rank among the 
foremost in the Association in religion and morals." (C. W. Mitchell in 
Minutes of 1899.) At the time of the organization of the church, 1804, 
there were only five churches in what is now the West Chowan Asso- 
ciation : Meherrin, Sandy Run, Cashie, Colerain and Conaritsa. 

The next year, October 1805, the Ahoskie Church was received into 
the Kehukee Association. The church was represented by Rev. Hillory 
Morris and Natahan Saunders and reported 67 members. The church is 
reporting this year 664. 

This church was one of the eighteen churches that had represent- 
atives at Salem Meeting House in Pasquotank County, May 16, 17, 18, 
1806, to organize the Chowan Association. The Chowan Association 
met with Ahoskie Church in 1833, 1867 and 1877; after the organization 
of the West Chowan in 1882 at Harrellsville it has met with this church 
in 1899, 1917, and now in 1932. It has been ninety-nine years since the 
Association first met with Ahoskie. 

Buildings. The Ahoskie Church was organized in a little building 
in which services had been held as a branch of Meherrin. The lot for 
the building was given by Miss Nancy Cherry. Soon after the church 
was organized it was found that the building was too small for the con- 



WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, 1932 25 



gregation. It was torn down and rebuilt as a barn on a farm now owned 
by Mrs. Bettie Mitchell about three miles from town. The building is 
still standing. The second building was erected by George Holloman 
and his brothers, Josiah, Jalon and Bryant, charter members of the 
church. This house was used until about 1870, when another building 
was erected. Henry Modlin hewed some of the sills for the house and 
William Henry Miller and Dick Jordan, a colored man, sawed most of 
the lumber with a rip saw. This building was remodeled twice. The 
last time was under the pastorate of M. A. Adams in 1909. It was put 
in its present shape as it now stands on the old site. In 1927 the church 
purchased from Brother J. S. Leary the present site for $5,000.00 and 
began building in the spring of 1928. The plan for building was "to 
pay as you go." So far about $50,000.00 have been expended on the 
building and it will require some fifteen to twenty thousand more to com- 
plete and equip it. The church moved into this building in May, 1930, 
and sold the old site to the Presbyterians for $6,000.00. 

Pastors. The list from the organization to 1882 is not complete be- 
cause the records are lost, but since 1882 the list is complete. It is prob- 
able that George Williams preached here when it was only a branch of 
Meherrin. Hillory Morris was the first pastor and preached from 1804 
to 1829 — twenty-five years, Tommie Hoggard, Alex Speight, Sr., William 
P. Britton (died in 1852), John Nowell, 1836-1859— twenty-three years, 
B. B. Williams — twice pastor, Capt. James M. C. Luke, and Harvey 
White. 1874— R. R. Savage— 12 years, 1886— John Mitchell— 2 years, 
1888— H. T. Williams— 2 years, 1890— Braxton Craig— 6 years, 1896— 
J. K. Fant— 2 years, 1898— R. D. Cross— 3 years, 1901— L. M. Curtis— 7 
years, 1908— M. A. Adams— 3 years, 1911— C. L. Dowell— 7 years, 1918 
— F. T. Collins — 4 years, 1922 — E. J. Isenhower — 3 years, 1925 — Oscar 
Creech — to present, 8 years. 

Gifts. In 1884, second year of the West Chowan Association, the 
total gifts of the church were $259.85— $200.00 for local expenses and 
$59.85 for missions, and the membership was 303. Sixteen years later, 
1900, the total gifts were $353.80; fifteen years later, 1915, the total gifts 
were $1,985.89— local expenses $928.29 and for missions $1,007.60. This 
was the first year that the amount for missions was more than for local 
expenses. The Ahoskie Church has put into kingdom work at home 
since 1900 until the present $122,695.31, and into kingdom work through- 
out the world $56,381.21. 

The Seventy-five-Million Campaign was the beginning of a new era 
in the matter of gifts with most of the churches. From 1919 to 1932 — 
thirteen years — gifts for ourselves have amounted to $91,126.55 or sev- 
enty-four per cent of the total amount given by the church since 1883 — 
forty-nine years. Gifts by the church for others for the same period 
have amounted to $49,321.85 or eighty-seven per cent of all given for 
others during these forty-nine years.
